Take me to the yarn


I have been lucky enough to be selected as a stallholder at the Bakewell wool gathering, to be held at the Bakewell agricultural centre on 9th and 10th October 2021. Fingers crossed that COVID will allow it to take place.

The Hawkshaw Flocks

With skill, care, and more than 40 years of experience, I rear hardy primitive Shetland sheep on the hills in The Scottish Borders. These small thrifty sheep positively  thrive in the harsh environment, producing fine quality fleeces that are ideal for creating the 100% British yarns that are warm and durable.

About Sue Horn

Hello! I’m Sue, a middle-aged mum and grandma who lives on a hill farm in The

Scottish Borders with my partner, Joe and Grandson, Callum. I have more than 40 years of experience in keeping sheep. In 2017 I started to use the fleeces from them to create high-quality yarn that is simply ideal for knitting. Natural, undyed bespoke yarn options are available by request, so don’t hesitate to get in touch when you’d like to order some attractive, vibrant yarn for any purpose. My farm is the only one in the area that rears these primitive hardy breeds of sheep on the mountains. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my animals, or my farm in Tweedsmuir, Lanarkshire.
