#MarrinersCosySeason Winner

September, a month when we can definitely feel the temperature change… Autumn has arrived, and what better inspiration for this month’s competition? Yes, it was weird starting a Cosy Season when the sun was still shining and we were wearing shorts and t-shirt… but fast-forward a few days and all our staff are arriving to work in coats and knitted jumpers!

And so to our wonderful winner who made their own Aran dress ready for the winter…and uni!

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 | 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 | 12 week lamb scan…

Written by

Good news – after getting friendly with our rams Baarney and Hercules in November, our ladies were scanned this week to find out how many baby lambs will be joining us in spring. Just like humans, ewes are scanned around the 10/12 week point to find out the number of lambs they carry.

The vet uses an ultrasound scanner to determine how many lambs each ewe is carrying to then mark the sheep’s back with a specific colour.

Watch our video below where Rhos explains how the coloured dots indicate how many lambs…

Marriner’s British Wool – A flock update

Written by

Our Marriner flock is well and truly at home in their lush, green sloping field. They are more than happy spending their days roaming the small hills and munching their way through a considerable amount of grass.

Their fleece is getting thicker by the day and we can already tell that it’s going to be quite soft. They are due their very first haircut around this time, and we can’t wait to take you through the whole process from shearing, to scouring, roving, spinning and, finally, winding. With only a small flock we won’t see a huge amount of wool…
