Our Wool

Why should I choose to use pure wool?

Our main raw material is wool, it is 100% natural, and from non-mulesed flocks. It’s a renewable resource, by consuming a simple blend of water, air, sunshine and grass, sheep produce a fleece, this is removed in the spring every year, enabling the sheep to stay cool and comfortable during the warm summer months. Wool is fully biodegradable decomposing in a matter of years, but more importantly wool fibres are strong and durable perfect for recycling.


What sheep does Shepley Yarns wool come from?

All of the wool used in our Pennine collection is British Wool Board Accredited and originates from Suffolk and Jacob sheep.

The Merino wool used in our Mariola collection is sourced primarily from Uruguayan and Chilean hillsides. The Merino is a breed of domestic sheep that produces high quality, lightweight, soft wool. 


All of our wool comes from non-mulesed flocks.

Production FAQs

Are your wool yarns woollen or worsted spun?

Our yarn is worsted spun. This means the fibres are combed to ensure they’re aligned and running parallel to one another. Worsted spun fibres are longer than woollen, consequently making them stronger yarns.


How is your yarn spun?

Our yarn is Z spun and S twisted.
