Marriner Flock | The lambs have arrived

Written by

It’s Easter weekend, and the perfect time to welcome the new arrivals on Marriner farm.

Happy Easter!

All the team at Marriner Yarns has been very excited this week as we get news of more and more baby lambs arriving at the farm. Our special flock of Romney ewes have been amazing and we are happy to say that we now have 40 more lambs at the farm – with more still on the way!

When each ewe has her lambs, they are sheltered in a small shed, away from the rest of flock, to allow them time to rest – you can find out more about this from Marriner’s farmer, Colin next…

Say hello to Marriner’s new flock…

Written by

Marriner Yarns has welcomed our very own flock of Romney Marsh sheep.

We are excited to start this journey with our own special flock and are looking forward to bringing our customers along every step of the way. The ladies have been getting to know their new home and are already looking rather fleecey. You will see more of them as they grow their fleece, when little lambs start frolicking, when they are sheared, and right up until we launch our very own Marriner wool.

New balls please…that’s new balls of yarn

It’s that time of year again; the sun is shining, strawberries and cream are at the ready and Murray Mountain’s population is growing by the second – it’s Wimbledon! But as the above picture would suggest, the action on centre court has proved to be incidental for this knitting enthusiast.

Long regarded as one of the hottest tickets in town, tennis…

British Wool | Marriner Yarns

Written by

With knitting yarn coming in so many different thicknesses, colour variations and textures it’s easy to forget where British knitting began – wool.

At Marriner our very first yarns were wool yarns, spun in a Yorkshire mill back in 1784. Since then it’s fair to say that we’ve moved with the demands of our customers, offering acrylic based yarns to meet current trends. However we’ve always taken a great sense of pride in remaining true to our roots, incorporating British Wool into our range whenever possible.

On a sunny morning in June, we were delighted to be invited along to a…
