Aalmerk, organic lamb, beef and wool from Uradale Farm, Shetland

Uradale yarns

Uradale sign and balls of organic yarn

Aalmerk sheep were owned by nobody as they carried no 'lugmarks'. These were the free spirits of the sheep world who ranged far and wide avoiding the boundaries of compliant domestication.

Uradale yarns come only from native Shetland sheep. Our sheep are naturally multi-coloured, so Uradale organic knitting yarns reflect the natural colours of our flock. These natural fleece colors are unbleached and undyed when spun.

Therefore, just like good wines, our yarns display subtle annual variations. Chemicals are not allowed to dominate the wool. It speaks for itself.

All non-sheep colours are organically dyed to reflect the flowers and mosses of Uradale Farm. Occasionally a new range of shades are produced to add to the palette.

Our Organic spinner supplies jumper weight, double knit, aran and chunky yarns. His skills help reveal the everlasting life in the fibre.
