Yarningham 2019 Exhibitor Preview – Hooligan Yarns


Hooligam Yarns produce single sheep yarn with a high welfare message.  The yarn is produced from their small flock using fleeces which otherwise might go to waste.  

Batches are produced by individual sheep fleece with the name and details of each boy or girl provided as a story postcard.

The boys of their flock were originally called The Hooligans because of their boisterous behaviour and unerring knack of seeking out trouble, and although the girls are generally better behaved, they also have their moments. And so Hooligan Yarns was born!
