Welcome to A Yarn from North Ronaldsay

A Yarn From North Ronaldsay Ltd is a small business based on the island of North Ronaldsay, Orkney whose main aim is to process & promote the fibre from the island’s rare breed of seaweed eating sheep.

We offer a wide range of natural high quality yarns, batts, rovings, and felt.

Colours range from white through various shades of grey and brown to black, also colours can be mixed to produce variegated yarns.

The facilities at the Mill gives us not only the opportunity of processing our own native fibre but also that of our customers, especially those who are unable to process small quantities.
