Background

Who are Romney Marsh Wools?

The family farm spans across part of the Romney Marsh and the adjacent escarpment of Aldington and Bonnington in Kent.

The Romney Sheep has been in the family for at least six generations, possibly more. Our current numbers are 1,000 ewes lambing in the traditional season of March and April. The Romney Sheep are an important part of our modern farming system, grazing clover rich pastures and forming an essential role in our arable rotation.


As Romney wool is considered to be one of the most versatile fleeces. We decided to look for areas of diversification within this sphere. My wife and I set up an exciting diversification project to have our fleeces transformed.

We take our fleeces to traditional weavers who hand process, then spin and weave our yarn into beautiful knee rugs and throws, which have a unique quality attributable to the Romney Sheep. With some of our cream wool we have mixed other naturally coloured native yarn to allow for varied design, colour and texture.

About the Wool

The Romney's wool is cream, semi-lustrous and thanks to its versatility is a popular choice for knitwear, yarn, and cloth.

In the past many of our sheep were exported for breeding to countries such as the Azores, China and Argentina and within the UK we supplied ewes to the Axminster company in Devon for use in wool carpets. Today wool represents only 5% of the World's Fibre production.

However it is becoming a more popular choice, as it is a renewable resource and a natural product.
