THE GREY SHEEP
The Little Grey Sheep is a British wool company based in Well Manor, in the south of England. The farm specialises in the rearing of fine wool sheep and is situated in a unique environment. The Little Grey Sheep aims to preserve the landscape, customs and processes and cultural heritage of the region.
Every Christmas, on the family’s Tudor-era farm, Susie shears the native breeds of sheep in the traditional way to obtain the finest fibre. Then a small group of trusted craftsmen wash, spin and comb the Gotland, Shetland and merino wools. Back at Well Manor, Emma hand dyes each skein, inspired by the Surrey Hampshire landscape and memories of her childhood in Pembrokeshire.
