North of Whitby, at the end of a long sandy beach, Sandsend is a small fishing village in a little bay that has formed where two streams flow from the North Yorkshire Moors into the sea. Located against steep cliffs at one end, with the sands running towards Whitby at the other, Sandsend is one of the most picturesque villages on the North Yorkshire coast. The ruins of Whitby Abbey are visible in the distance and at one time Alum workers lived in some of the cottages.

The colours of the lovely sands of Sandsend change with the light and the sea conditions but our soft, gentle yellow gives an inkling of how they can look.

This beautiful worsted spun high end Border Leicester yarn is grown here on our farm in North Yorkshire, from our pedigree flock of over 300 pedigree Border Leicester sheep, who all live to grow old.

After shearing we handpick the fleeces and transport them to Bradford for washing, combing and worsted spinning. The result is stunning.

With a great handle, stitch definition and drape, it is the perfect yarn for your special project. British through and through and we are very proud of it!
