Very British Wool has yarn sustainability at its core. Our ethically produced wool yarns are British through and through from the farm to the finished yarn and can be traced back to the flock, and sometimes the individual sheep, that gave its fleece for the yarn. Independent British wool growers and yarn producers [usually smallholders or small scale farmers] provide the ultimate in sustainable yarns for knitting and crochet projects and by buying their yarns you are supporting British farmers and directly championing native and rare breed sheep.
