Come Along and Meet us

We’re attending a range of shows throughout the UK so come and say ‘hello’


I produce luxurious knitting wools in beautiful colours and from natural fibres.  Although now retired from breeding alpacas in the Lake District, I still use my knowledge of alpaca fibre to make a variety of alpaca blend yarns.  I love fleece and I’m fascinated by the different characteristics of British sheep – I select the finest, softest fibres for my yarns.

I sell the yarns at our shop, Woollen, in Frome, Somerset, on-line, over the phone and through selected yarn shops across the country.

Some of the yarns are also knitted into socks in the UK.  The full range of alpaca and wool socks are available through our other brand Arbon Socks.

  • ‘Thames’ is an Alpaca DK yarn.  We have combined alpaca with Merino wool and silk to produce a DK knitting yarn in an exclusive blend which has been spun for us in the UK.  This luxurious Double Knit knitting wool is a blend of 45% Peruvian baby alpaca, 35% superfine, organic Falklands Merino wool and 20% Mulberry silk.

    Thames Alpaca DK yarn has been dyed in the Scottish Borders in seven muted, sophisticated colours along with an undyed option.

    This yarn knits to standard double knitting patterns, (but always knit a tension swatch).  There are approximately 225m per 100g.  The yarn is sold in 100g hanks.  If you would like us to ball your yarn for you, please make a note on the order.

  • Pure Natural Alpaca DK Yarn Roan Grey

    This British Alpaca DK yarn in Roan is 100% pure alpaca fibre.  It is spun from finest fleeces from alpacas farmed in the UK.  Roan is a blend of white and naturally coloured fleeces which have produced a pale grey yarn with a subtle hint of brown.

    There are approximately 107 metres per 50g.  Sold in 50g balls.
