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 Flock | Spring Shearing

Written by


Our beautiful ladies’ fleece was getting a bit long, so they were due their second yearly shearing this week – and they certainly deserve it after running around with their little ones who are getting cheekier and cheekier by the day.

Shearing not only means that we can turn the lovely fleece into wool, but it also is necessary for the sheep to have a better quality of life. Shearing keeps the fleece away from their eyes, which can cause wool-blindness when left to grow too long, it allows the lambs to find the udder more easily, and it eases the load they have to carry around each day. When they are sheared, it also means that their instincts tell them to seek shelter in rainy or colder conditions, whereas with a full fleece, they are more…

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 | 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.
