New exhibitor – Garthenor

garthenor

We are delighted to announce a last minute addition to this year’s Yarningham marketplace, Garthenor.

Garthenor’s mission is to promote and provide a variety of sustainable, organic & British wool products in an ecologically responsible way. Their aim is to help secure the future of British organic agriculture and the British textile industry.

Garthenor source, produce and sell Certified organic wool products, including yarn, fleece and bespoke knitwear. All the wool you’ll see with their name on it has been certified to global organic standards.

Garthenor was started in the 1990s, with wool produced from their own sheep. They’ve since expanded faster than their flock, and they now buy raw fleeces from around the UK directly from the farmer – no middle man, which means all their wool is fully traceable from sheep to jumper.
