Fliskmillan Fibers - 100% Romney Lambswool

Fliskmillan Farm is based in North East Fife, just outside Newburgh, on the south bank of the River Tay.

It’s a 350 acre livestock farm, specialising in pedigree Highland Cattle and New Zealand Romney sheep.

Their yarn comes from their small flock of New Zealand Romney sheep who graze the fields on Norman’s Law.

The lambs were sheared in October with each lamb producing on average 2.5kg of raw fleece. The raw fleeces were then processed into hand-knitting yarns by the Natural Fibre Company.

Currently Fliskmillan Fibres are available in DK weight in 4 colours and an Aran weight in a classic cream.
