We are a small-scale family-run worsted spinning mill in Dorset processing mainly alpaca fibre supplied from the South West and wider UK. The mill provides a manufacturing service for breeders, garment designers and product makers. Occasionally we have lots of tops and yarns for sale as well as ‘waste’ fibre from the process that makes a valuable resource for local spinners and soft furnishing makers.
We also take part in seminars to spread knowledge about fibre processing and product manufacture.
We are starting the conversation about how the South West can produce more home-grown textiles and garments in a more healthy, resilient and regenerative textile ecosystem.
