Blacker Swan is a joint venture between Blacker Yarns and Andrez and Ali Short who farm at Swan Inlet Farm on the Falkland Islands. Andrez and Ali shear their specialist merino type dual purpose sheep, sort and grade the fleeces and send them by ship to the UK, where The Natural Fibre Company turns the fine white fleeces into luxurious worsted spun yarns.

We have created 13 lovely dyed colours, which are named after the rich wildlife of the Falkland Islands. In addition to the dyed yarns we also produce a pure white which is 100% Merino. All other natural Blacker Swan shades are produced by blending the Falkland Merino with either Sheltand Moorit, or Blue Faced Leicester.
