WoolWork is the new name for KnitBritish Join me on my journey of woolly discovery celebrating the unique characteristics of local wool, from sheep to skein, to finished object. You can visit knitbritish.net and follow me on twitter and IG @_woolwork
In this episode, recorded a few weeks ago, I chat with Kristina Boulden who is one half of the husband and wife team behind Romney Marsh Wools.
Knowing how sustainable and versatile wool is Kristina and Paul wanted to raise awareness of all the benefits that British wool can bring and they stock an incredible range of wool-related products which have derived from their 1000 strong Romney flock and their small stock of merino sheep.
Please join us as Kristina talks about the farm, the inception of the business and we chat together about British wool and what is needed to keep people choosing British.
I will be reviewing Romney Marsh wool on the blog soon and giving away a skein of their amazing British merino wool. Kristina is just about to launch more of the natural colours of her Romney yarn and you should keep an eye on the website for those going up there.
You can find Romney Marsh Wools at www.romneymarshwools.co.uk, where you can find out more about Paul and Kristina, their vision and their store. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter and you should also sign up for their regular newsletter.
