Welcome to the Blackdown Hills Natural Fibres website
Welcome to Blackdown Hills Natural Fibres. We are a group of fibre farmers, processors and users all living and working within or around the Blackdown Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty straddling the Devon and Somerset border.
Whether we grow it, process it or use it we are all totally commited to offering you the very best Alpaca, Cashmere, Mohair and wool products in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way. Our members grow it here, process it here wherever possible at Coldharbour Mill and then turn it into the most amazing range of high quality. absolutely unique yarns and finished items.
On this site you will find information about our group ethos as well as individual members and their services or products . If you share our commitment to local processing of local fibre in an environmentally sensitive way but without the compromise on quality this sometimes means, then join us! Farmers, processors and end users are all welcome.
Following the success of Fibrefest 2009 we are working hard to organise Fibrefest 2011. Watch this space for more information. www.fibrefest.co.uk
The BlackdownHills were the backdrop of the wedding of Louise Cottey and Rob Young this year. The event was made particularly unique by the unique woven wedding dress created by the bride.
