Our Ethos

Our ethos is centred around animal welfare, traditional quality and sustainability. At the top of the list is to protect a rare breed sheep and provide conditions for them to live healthy, contented lives on good pastureland. We aim to make ‘products’ which are both durable and beautiful.

Wensleydale wool is renowned as the world’s finest and we try to do as little as possible to it in terms of dying and chemical treatments so that it retains its lustre and natural qualities.

We aim to create a sustainable operation by breeding and raising our Wensleydale sheep flock on our Suffolk estate at Ilketshall. We harvest the wool and breed our rams with ewes from other flocks to hopefully contribute to the survival of this wonderful breed.
