Knit it... Wear it... Love it

At Home Farm Wensleydales we provide 100% pure Wensleydale wool perfect for hand-spinning, knitting, crochet, felting, craft, rug making and weaving.  Sometimes complimented with Bluefaced Leicester, the Wensleydale wool is spun from our fleece. It feels soft, luxurious and perfect for any garment.

Both the Wensleydales and Bluefaced Leicester sheep are kept here on the farm. This beautiful wool is washed and spun in Yorkshire so the entire product, including the ballband, is 100% genuine and 100% British!

When you buy yarn from Home Farm Wensleydales you can be confident that every ball and skein has been produced with the utmost love and care, not only for its quality and beauty but also our concern for animal welfare.

4 PLY - A TRUE LABOUR OF LOVE

This fabulous 4 ply in Naturally Coloured Pure Genuine Wensleydale arrived at Home Farm in August 2016. This has been a 'labour of love'; the Coloured Wensleydale is very rare and it has taken over 5 years to increase our flock of black Wensleydales to collect enough of this rare breed fleece to have it professionally washed and spun.  I'm sure you will agree it was well worth the wait - the most amazing natural colours from these wonderful coloured sheep.
