This coming Summer in 2024, we invite you to join us at our farm at Lunan Bay, on the North East Coast of Scotland, where you’ll have a day-long, fully immersive, intimate experience learning how we produce our Scottish Regenerative Cashmere. From combing Cashmere from our goats, to spinning the yarn on shore of Lunan Bay. By joining our event, you are supporting our pioneering work to bring back homegrown Cashmere production to Scotland. Read more about HERE.
During our Cashmere farm to fibre experience, you can help gently comb our Cashmere goats to harvest our fibre, learn how our Cashmere fibre is processed, and experience hand spinning and natural yarn dyeing on the shore of Lunan Bay, the stunning wild Scottish beach we call “Home”.
There will be a demonstration on the key steps involved in converting fibre into yarn, by our artisan hand-spinner. You will have the opportunity to try hand-spinning and hand-carding with fibre from our Shetland sheep.
Learn how to dye our fibre with plant extracts, over fire in our cosy beachside bothy, and make your own naturally dye yarn to take home as a memento of your visit.
See the environmental benefits our regeneratively managed goats bring. You’ll also receive a double dose of goat therapy as we offer you the opportunity to interact with our herd of friendly Cashmere goats and also Shetland and North Ronaldsay native breed sheep.
Immerse yourself in nature of our special place whilst enjoying a delicious lunch of artisan cakes, quiches and locally roasted coffee and teas.
An accompanied sea/river dipping experience, with changing rooms and hot chocolate, is an optional extra, if desired and conditions allow.
