"Hi Mandy,
The yarn has just arrived and it's absolutely stunning! Thank you so much! I'm so excited to knit with it.
It’s so lovely knowing the names of the sheep, and that they’re loved and well-cared for. I’ll definitely be buying more after Christmas!
Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester are my absolute favourites - they’re so soft! I hope your new yarn arrives soon! Your slippers sound wonderful - what a special present.
Thank you again and happy Christmas"

"The wool has finally made its way into my hands - I am in awe. Both of the colors are so beautiful, I knew you would create something beautiful. We were so focused on the Oxblood that I didn't really think about the green. It is such a beautiful rich green, I really love it.
Thank you and your flock for creating these for me, I can't wait to knit with them."

"Dear Mandy
I have received the lovely wool this morning and am delighted with it. The colours are beautiful. Having essayed hand dying on my own spun wool in the past I am in awe at what you have produced. I shall need another 100g or so of wool soon, so shall be in touch."
Many thanks again, Kindest Regards,
Carmel Hughes - Wales

"Hi Mandy:
Just to let you that my yarn arrived yesterday, I am so highly delighted with it and can’t wait to knit something. Thank you also for the lovely cute sheep progress maker. I will purchase again from you soon.
Not sure if you like to keep a record of where or how people hear of your business, but I heard about you from the Woolly Witchcraft podcast, she test knitted a sock pattern from Inga at Knitting Tradition using this yarn. I had planned to maybe do the same pattern or maybe a cowl or something Decisions, Decisions lol
Thank you once again for the speedy despatch"
Best wishes

The yarn is here and it is stunning! I love the color and the texture Is amazing!
Thank you to Bella and Ruby, and to you! I really look forward to finding the perfect project to do it justice!"

"Dear Mandy
I received the package today and the colours are so vibrant, such a beautiful product.
Thanks and best of luck with your business through these difficult times."

"Your yarn arrived in tonight’s post and I couldn’t wait to tell you how absolutely beautiful it is!! So soft and such wonderfully pure shades of gray and white! i wish I could visit and meet you and your lovely sheep to say thank you. I am so delighted that I learned about Faithmead Yarns and will now be looking forward to staying in touch."

"I just wanted to let you know how much I love the yarn! I have been making a blanket and it is so soft and lovely to work with. I wish I had enough to make a jumper now!

"My Faithmead Christmas box arrived and I am delirious with happiness with the beauty and touch of the wool. As usual with your skeins, they are even more beautiful in hand. I am amazed at the luminosity of the color. All are soft, beautiful and rendering me a scheming mad woman as I plot projects"

"Thankyou for the fabulous yarn, I am knitting now and will have my lunch and knit the afternoon away!"
Maureen, Ontario, Canada

"It's interesting - I knew I would love the aubergine as it's my favorite color, and the undyed LL glistens it is so beautiful, but the Corridale/BFL is just gorgeous. The color is so subtle, actually more pinky plum than brown.
As I had said before, your yarns are even more beautiful than shown online, they are all so stunning.
Thank you!"

"Again, your yarn gives such pleasure to us knitters as it is so beautiful and also reflects the love and care you give your sheep. It is passed on through the handle of the yarn."
Stephanie - California

"Got a gorgeous yarn delivery yesterday. It's from Mandy at Faithmead Yarns. I couldn't resist these lovely yarn blend of 70 % Bluefaced Leicester 30% Rose Fiber.
A 4ply yarn with somewhat handspun character. I'm very pleased as well with the good service. Thank you Mandy"

From Gaynor Morris - Wales

"Just received my first order of the wonderful yarn, 2 skeins of Teeswater and 2 of Leicester Longwool. Both in their natural, creamy colours. So lovely to read the label and see the names of the sheep it came from. The yarn is beautiful and I can’t wait to start knitting with it."
Thank you, Jinny Lyn

Gotland Roving. Arrived, thank you. I’m already thinking about what I’m going to make, several project are coming to mind.  I’ll send pictures when I’ve finished.
Thank You, Catherine Wissner

"Dear Mandy, The wool arrived yesterday and is stunningly beautiful! Thank you for the fast turnaround of the order - always important for a wool addict. I haven’t ever knitted with Teeswater but from your photo I love the look of the halo combined with the shininess. I’m afraid that I’d never want to part with any of the yarn if it was mine :’)
Warmest wishes, Claire
