Yarn bases

All my yarn bases are currently sourced from the lovely folks at Chester Wool Company. All their wool is ethically sourced from non-mulesing farms. They only source from farms where best farming practice is used. If you’d like to see more about where and how the fibre is sourced head over to the Chester Wool Facebook page where they often post videos and photos of their visits to their supplier farms.  https://www.facebook.com/chesterwool/
