Cambrian Wool is a CIC (Community Interest Company) and is dedicated to supporting the local rural economy and has a outreach programme with the local community. A wonderful initiative that just so happens to produce wonderful yarn!
Cambrian Wool says:
”Our dyed yarns are spun from finest Welsh Mule: Bluefaced Leicester with character! The Welsh Mule comes about by crossing the local hill breeds with a Bluefaced Leicester ram, and this cross improves the wool. Suited to clothing, this yarn has a good definition whilst developing a nice halo. Hand wash and don’t tumble dry!
Our wool is produced on farms throughout the Cambrian Mountains Region, which encompasses much of Mid Wales – a stunningly beautiful and wild area.”
