Caithness Yarns


Caithness Yarns offers premium quality artisan yarns made from sheep sourced from high-welfare small to medium farms in the North of Scotland. The focus is on the traditional breed here the North Country Cheviot, with side lines from select British Rare Breed sheep like the Castlemilk Moorits in the Caithness flock. Dyed colors are gorgeous, as are the naturals. “I wanted to start buying the ‘black sheep’ fleeces that exist in many flocks and are unwanted by the wool board. More fool them cos they are lovely,” the maker says.
