Marriner Flock | Fleece First Impressions

Written by


After shearing, we sat down with the shearer and asked him to tell us a little bit about shearing Romneys twice a year and his first impressions on the fleece.

It’s already lovely and soft, and also very clean – so that means it should be easier to process and yield more yarn – which means even more yarn available for our lovely customers! But a little less on our ladies…

The fleece is now currently being processed, and we will have news of an arrival date very soon. We can’t wait to show you our very own

Marriner DK washability

Knitting or crocheting anything with yarn is incredibly satisfying, but when it comes to washing those precious garments, blankets, and other creations, it can create a slight pang of anxiety. Should you wash it warm? Cold? Does it need to be hand washed? Will it affect the quality? Will it run, stretch, or alter the fit? Should I even wash it at all…?

These are all valid questions that arise when faced with a handmade item – after all, it doesn’t usually come with a handy label telling you how to care for it. When it comes to yarns, the…

Marriner Flock | Growing up!

Written by

Our little lambs are now about 8/9 weeks old and they have been thoroughly enjoying themselves and making themselves at home in their new field.

You can see that they are all now looking much bigger – and much more fleecy. Can you see that signature Romney ‘wool mask’ that is starting to appear?

They are still sticking close to their mums – and altogether make for a very fluffy bunch! Another shearing is coming up very soon…

Marriner Flock | Moving to fresh pastures

Written by

All of lambs have now arrived, and it’s already time to take their very first holiday as we relocate them to newer, fresh pastures.

Our flock are happy and content where they are, but by moving the mums onto fresher grass, it means that they can produce better quality milk to feed their little ones. This milk will be better for the lambs and make sure they are getting all they need from their mums.

Marriner Flock | Get to know Marriner’s farmer

Written by

After introducing you to our flock and our gorgeous new lambs on the Marriner farm, we thought it was about time that you heard from Mr. Marriner himself, and how he came to be our farmer.

We couldn’t be happier that Colin’s ‘hobby’ has turned into something so wonderful. It’s been a great opportunity for a lot of the Marriner team to get involved, spend some time in the countryside, and see the very beginnings of the wool production process.

Marriner Flock | The lambs have arrived

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!
