Tunstall Teeswaters are a small but dedicated breeding farm located in Captain Cook country, with one aim - to keep the Teeswater breed alive and to help remove them from category 3 (vulnerable) of the Rare Breeds Survival watch list. When the small flock was started a number of years ago, the breed was at category 2 (endangered) on the RBS list, so the shepherds like to think they have gone some way towards achieving their aim. Today Tunstall homebred lambs are located as far south as South Devon and as far north as Aberdeenshire.

Jess of Ginger Twist Studios has created a unique Ginger’s Hand Dyed colourway for the Teeswater yarn, Misselthwaite Manor. Inspired by a childhood classic, The Secret Garden. This limited edition colourways is paired with Yorkshire Moors in two intensities, naturally hand dyed with logwood.
