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

Uradale yarns

Uradale organic wool hats Our flock of pure native Shetland sheep spend most of the year grazing heather moorland hills and the banks down to the shoreline where they will also graze on seaweed.

Our organic 100% native Shetland wool clip has been scoured, spun and dyed organically.

These colours are inspired by the plants that make up the Heather moorland vegetation that our sheep feed on. 'Ling', 'moss', 'tormentil', 'selfheal' and 'bilberry' were chosen to work well with the lovely natural Shetland sheep colours: white, greys, moorit etc. 'Meadowsweet', 'juniper', 'deer grass' and 'sundew' are reminiscent of traditional vegetable dyed colours. The natural white is unbleached and un-washed - you can feel the lanolin in it as you knit! There are 4 weights of the dyed yarns - double knit, jumper weight, aran and chunky.
