Our products, like our sheep, are rare and small in number. Sustainably produced, they glean their aesthetic qualities from the Hebridean landscape and culture.
Our knitting yarn is honest and artisanal. It knits up into warm and durable garments that will take a bit of weather and stand the test of time.
Sunhill 'Cnoc na Grèine' is a family run croft on the Isle of Berneray in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
We rear pedigree Hebridean sheep and our sustainable whole-sheep-plan ensures the best in animal husbandry and consideration of our beautiful island ecology.
Our sheep lamb on our croft in the spring. We then take them by boat to summer grazing on islands in the Sound of Harris. Around July, we shear the sheep on the islands with the wool sorted and graded once we are back ashore on the croft. In the autumn, the ewes are brought back for tupping, after which they spend most of the winter on the machair common grazing.
Though not carried to and fro by Birlinn (Hebridean Galley), they are still very much 'seafaring sheep'.
The colors and textures bring these breeds across the sea and frolicking on my looms in New England, USA. These yarns are a clear and beautiful representation of what goes into a whole-hearted devotion of raising these historical breeds.
