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 we can expect:


We have only five ewes that are not carrying any lambs, but they may still come to be mothers in the future. This means that in the spring we will have our whole field full of lambs. We have lots of ewes expecting…

Marriner Flock | Time for a haircut…

Written by

Our ladies are now getting ready for winter and that also means they are getting ready to be mums. We will hopefully see the arrival of some gorgeous little lambs come March and April and our flock is currently being looked after in preparation to carry their little ones for a few months. One of the ways we prepare for this is to shear them.

A few weeks ago, all of our sheep went for a visit to the hairdresser and are now looking considerably less fluffy…

Free Christmas Mini Makes!

Our customers are some of the most talented and creative people we have the pleasure of dealing with. Each day they surprise us with their knitting and crochet makes – conjuring everything from huge blankets, cute amigurumi, beautiful cardigans and cosy scarves with their own hooks or needles.

As it’s approaching our favourite, festive time of year, we couldn’t let it go by without asking our customers if we could show off some of their own little Christmas creations that we think everyone would enjoy making in the run up to the big day.

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…

#AutumnwithMarriner winner

September saw the arrival of our favourite season, and while we still seem to be seeing a bit of an Indian summer, there is definitely that distinctive autumn chill in the air….
