Fernhill Fibre

Fine yarns and fibre from the source of the resource

 

A little about us

Fernhill Farm is an eco farm and events venue atop the Mendip Hills, in Somerset, England. Owners Andy and Jen have a flock of approximately 3000 Shetland-cross sheep selectively bred for fine colourful fibre, mature meat qualities, hardiness and their ability to restore biodiversity when continually grazing in larger nomadic-style flocks.

We sell raw fleece individually as well as fleece in bulk, along side UK-processed products made from our wool, including yarn, woven goods and felt for crafters in our online shops . We continually design our own working style garments suited to outdoor busy lives and supply UK-based businesses such as Garthenor, Bristol Cloth, Marina Skua, Annabel Williams, Barn 2 Yarn, Ria Burns, Wivey Weaver, The Lace Knittery and Bellacouche.

On the farm, as well as weddings and parties, we host craft workshops and educational visits for those interested in learning about natural materials and gaining new skills. We're happy to play host to fibre retreats and events organised by others. Get in touch if you'd like to book our venue or your group wishes to pre-book our Educational Access farm tours.
