Hebridean sheep are a minority breed having been rescued by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. Thankfully, the quality of their wool is once again being appreciated and so their numbers are increasing. The Boreray breed are listed by the RBST as critically endangered, with only 300 breeding ewes remaining. Our Boreray flock are part of a growing conservation project.

This amazing Loom Woven Viking Varafeldur is a Viking age cloak made from Hebridean sheep's fleece from Andi at Millfields Rare Breeds in Essex. It is created by locking staples of fleece into a plain weave on a warp weighted loom. This is the first authentically woven Varafeldur made in Essex for well over 1000 years.
