Farm to Yarn
Kate Schofield is a textile designer/maker and wool merchant working with farmers in Arnside & Silverdale AONB to promote the use of wool.
Kate purchases Whitefaced Woodland and Masham fleeces direct from two farms in Far Arnside and Yealand Conyers. The fleeces are processed into yarn at a mini mill in the UK.
The handsome Whitefaced Woodlands are the nearest relatives to the old Silverdale or Warton Crag sheep which became extinct in the mid 20th Century.
The magnificent Masham sheep have been bred in Northern England for centuries with their beautiful, long, lustrous curly fleeces…..their wool is in great demand by hand-spinners.
Working together farmer, mill and maker produce homegrown, homespun wool and textiles with provenance sold in Lancaster by Northern Yarn.
