Herdy wool is 100% British. The Herdy brand helps to promote and sustain the Herdwick sheep breed and traditional upland fell farming communities of the English Lake District.The wool is spun in Guiseley, Yorkshire, which supports the local woollen industry and the vibrant colour palette makes it a perfect choice for funky children’s footwear. Further balls of yarn are available from our friends at Baa Baa Brighouse.
