With 15 members, we are made up of spinners, dyers, rug makers, knitters, crocheters, weavers and felt makers, as well as designers and farmers - many of us are several of those in one!
We work as a co-operative, enabling us to run the shop as a social enterprise and giving us access to each other’s skills and knowledge on everything from equipment and techniques, to suppliers and local history.
With wool as a common interest, some of us have been friends for years and others are new-found friends. It isn’t intentional that we are all female – it’s just the way it has worked out so far.
We aim to make the co-operative open and inclusive and welcome new members, so long as they work predominantly with British wool and bring something new and different to our range.
