Fibreshed Producer

Rampisham Hill Farm and Mill

Dorset
Raw wool from native sheep

Rampisham Hill Farm in Dorset provides raw fleeces to spinners & crafters from our own registered Dorset Down sheep, as well as other native breeds from local flocks within 5 – 10 miles of our own farm.  We always have full traceability on our fleece  and are happy to share this when asked.

Rampisham Hill Mill, our new wool processing mill is now open

Using high-specification wool processing machinery, housed in our purpose built mill, and powered by renewable technology, we will be offering wool processing services to individuals and businesses.

Services will include washing wool, carding fleece into batts, sliver or core spun rug yarn, gilling, and spinning and plying into yarn. We will be able to process as little as one fleece.

We anticipate being able to accept fleeces for washing and carding starting in June 2021, with spinning following shortly afterwards.

Please follow the progress of the mill via our social media accounts above,  or you can sign up to our newsletter on our mill website to receive occasional updates.
