Beilidu Manx Loaghtan

The Beilidu flock is made up of rare breed Manx Loaghtan sheep, bred mainly for their fleeces. The flock has been established for over 25 years just outside Sennybridge near Brecon in mid-Wales.

Beilidu Manx Loaghtan yarn is spun by hand and is normally supplied as skeins. Yarn can be spun to meet individual needs, and is normally spun 'to order'.

The wool reflects the natural colours of the sheep in the flock. Most of the Beilidu flock have dark brown fleeces with golden tips, but the wool becomes a paler brown or silver-gray as the animals age.

Linda Scott is a hand-spinner and member of the Brecknock Guild of Spinners Weavers and Dyers.

Alison Fennell hand cards all of her fibre and spins it on a Wee Peggy wheel in Pontypridd, South Wales. She takes pride in her fibre prep and aims to produce an out of the ordinary skein every time. She likes to blend strange mixtures and add lots of loft to her rolags before spinning. This makes surprising light and soft skeins.
