January Super-Buy - Home Farm Wensleydale Wool

We survived Christmas, the last minute rush on Christmas parcels hit the mail in time for Christmas delivery and we think we managed to get all orders rolled, packed and out in time for the big day.   And thank you for supporting our small business.

January - what better time to relax on these dark evenings with something for yourself, a new knitting or crochet project ready in time for spring.

To help you along, we have a super offer this month.  Try one skein in each of our colours of the blended Wensleydale & Bluefaced Leicester, either in 4 Ply or DK, your choice.  Take a look at some of our kits for ideas and drop me a message if you would like me to pop a pattern in for you free of charge.  
Happy knitting, happy January.

November Super-Buy - Home Farm Wensleydale Wool

British summer time ended two days ago that brings on colder, darker and longer evenings but always the positive side … ‘tis the season to knit something snuggly!  Time to really enjoy our craft - with your choice of tea and a great big slice of chocolate cake!

We’re kicking off something new this season - our Super-Buys.  And this November we’re starting with a great offer for you - introducing our 5 skeins of amazing naturally coloured 4 Ply wool from the stunning black Wensleydale.  There are so many gorgeous colours in this natural undyed wool.  It’s a sock/sport/fingering weight,  2/8 Nm.

 

Just after Christmas we’ll have an offer for our new Aran collection in soft colours as well as natural from the black Wensleydale.  Spun with mostly lambs wool this aran will be our best yet!   As soon as it arrives we’ll pop it on our wall pronto - make sure you follow us on @homefarmwensleydales for updates!

And if you know any rug makers, we should be receiving our white/black Lincoln Longwool Combed top in the next couple of weeks.  This will be perfect for rugging - a very traditional product but with the luxury of combing!

Have a wonderful November - please be considerate of pets & livestock on fireworks nights - and remember Christmas is quickly approaching, so letters to Santa need to be sent off soon!

It's lambing 2021 already

For an awful year, thankfully at Home Farm it seems to have gone quite quickly and we are already set up and waiting for our new lambs for the 2021 season.

Always making improvements both with the quality of our wool and the health and welfare of our sheep are what keeps us very busy at the farm.  Our lambs, born March 2020 are the best we have ever seen on our farm and although I always do say this, they really are!  

Our barn is full with pregnant ewes - 80 of them - and we hope to have a successful lambing season again this year - with the first of the lambs due tomorrow! 
The barn is warm and cosy, the ewes are looking very round and happily munching away on the fine hay and good food we provide.  Their beds are changed every day and the water is always cold and fresh.  Individual lambing pens are waiting for them and their new lambs as soon as they want!  Not a bad life.

I'm hoping the weather improves a little, then we can turn the new lambs out quicker.  We always keep some good pasture for the new lambs and never turn them out onto pasture where lambs have grazed the previous year.  This cuts down any disease and also gives them a lovely fresh field to graze.  

Hope to have time to make a new blog during lambing but I always update instagram if you would like to follow us  #homefarmwensleydales
