About

Our smallholding is on the border of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire in South West Wales, with views out across the Preseli Hills. This is where we produce 'Wool with Provenance'.

From here we keep our Faithmead Rare Breed and Longwool sheep, who lovingly have their every whim catered for by me, their slave Shepherdess.

All our sheep have names, and all our yarns come from these named sheep.

We keep a handful of several different breeds which are:-
Leicester Longwool, Bluefaced Leicester, Coloured Bluefaced Leicester, Wensleydale, Teeswater, Corriedale and Gotland 

Each and every fleece is ‘skirted’ and picked over by myself before continuing to its next process, whether to the Mill, or being hand washed here, dried, and then divided into bunches of locks, or bags of beautiful fleece, ready for spinning.

The fleeces that are sent to The Border Mill in Scotland for processing into differing weights of beautiful yarn are very much limited edition, as each batch consists of the wool from between one and four sheep -  From the lustrous longwool locks of the Wensleydale to the soft, bouncy highly crimped Corriedale.
