Dartmoor Jacob Shetland Wool

Peter Hunt lives in the heart of Dartmoor. In North Bovey he raises his sheep, bees & chickens. He produces honey & for a number of years now he has steadily grown his  flock of Jacob & Shetland sheep. 

 

His ambition is to produce wool & their by-products from his sheep; his sheep are fed on conservation pastures, all the wool is therefore 100% pure and natural, which makes a wool of exceptional quality, strong & soft. 

 

The wool is collected from the sheep in September-October, it is then processed in a mill in Launceston, Cornwall. Peter & his collegues do the rest. The dyes are natural; the wool is resistant in the wash & because of it's quality it has a  long life.
