The Woolshed

Handmade felt articles, knitwear, wool and weaving

Come and visit us at The Woolshed where we use fleece from the native seaweed eating North Ronaldsay breed of sheep to produce traditional knitwear and handmade felt. And while you’re here enjoy the dramatic views over Eynhallow Sound or marvel at the original stonework of the old house and kiln.

Handbags or hedgehogs, tea cosies or teddy bears, scarves, mice, wallhangings or whatever we can think of, it is all designed, hand-felted and handmade at the Woolshed. There is also a selection of carded fleece in natural colours and an array of glorious hand dyed tops for felt-makers and spinners.

Traditionally styled jumpers are hand knitted or hand framed from North Ronaldsay wool in natural colours, and, for hand knitters, this lovely soft wool is available in 100g balls. Or how about some colourful hand dyed skeins?

For that special reminder of Orkney we have 100% North Ronaldsay wool woven rugs with a definite ‘cuddle’ factor, and we now have a small selection of items handwoven at the woolshed.

There’s something here for everyone and we look forward to meeting you.
