Welcome to our Etsy shop, where we stock a variety of yarns, fleece, kits and creations. All of our products are grown or made here At Birkhill House CIC.
First, our fleece. The welfare of our animals is of paramount importance to us, and we love the fact that we know every step of the process from the animal in the field to the yarn in our hands. We are expanding our hand-processing, and many of our fleeces have also been sent to The Border Mill in Duns for professional spinning.
These balls of yarn are available for sale and also appear in our newly created kits, which are designed in conjunction with local fibre artisans and creators.
We use reclaimed materials to make project bags and reclaimed cardboard boxes destined for the recycle bin. Volunteers help to make the bags and put together the kits, learning valuable sewing and organisational skills along the way. All of our packaging, from the cardboard boxes to the tape and tags, is paper-based and can be recycled if you don’t want to re-use it.
