Black Sheep Wools is a family run wool and needlecraft store based in the beautiful village of Culcheth. Textiles run in this family's blood - they've been established since 1983! You cannot fail to be inspired by this wonderful space.

Hare Hill Barn -

Hare Hill is a small traditional Lakeland hill farm which can be traced back to the early 18th Century. Although the house has earlier origins, it was rebuilt in 1907. The farmbuildings date from the late 19th Century, since when they have remained unchanged.

Hare Hill is currently run as a sheepholding for approximately 140 Swaledale ewes, and has 30 acres of wildflower meadows cut in the summer for hay, and supporting a large population of skylarks. In the Second World War Hare Hill was used as a training farm for the Womens’ Land Army.

In 2006, Julian and Vanda Lambton bought the farm and have since embarked on a series of environmental projects, supported by a Higher Level Stewardship Scheme, including woodland planting, creation of orchards and a pond, wall and hedgerow restoration. The land is managed with minimal intervention to promote biodiversity. A happy bi-product of these projects is that we have a new population of hares breeding successfully on the farm, some of which are regularly seen around the barn

    I have been lucky enough to take a number of workshops with Lazy Kate Textiles including beginners spinning, colour confidence, dyeing and weaving. All workshops have been very well organised with excellent resources. Cathy is a fantastic and thoughtful teacher who explains things really well and anticipates the things people commonly find difficult. She is very patient and encouraging. Although the workshops have been with many different people, the groups are always the perfect size - not too big to ensure there is individual help but big enough so that it's a lovely social time too.
    I would highly recommend these workshop

    So in between lockdowns etc I did a workshop held at the tea rooms, it was small and I felt safe. I’ve never done weaving before and it was explained very thoroughly. Jess and Sofia were very professional but friendly and helpful! I produced a lovely scarf. Definitely would recommend anyone to have a go as it’s very relaxing and enjoyable. Also it was an opportunity to meet some new people. Thanks

    • Catherine Wright (store manager)

      Thank you Joanne, that's wonderful to hear. We're glad you enjoyed it.

    I’ve had quite a few workshop sessions with Cathy; spinning, weaving and dyeing including several 121 sessions, 1 over zoom to sort out my tension when spinning. Cathy and her team have been amazing; kind, calm in the face of some setbacks, very enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgable. I have since had several 121 follow up sessions to sort out the warping up of my Rigid Heddle loom. I cannot recommend Lazy Kate Textiles too highly. The staff are professional and thoughtful.

    I was taught to spin by Cathy, and went back for a lesson on plying. She was very patient and let me go at my own pace. I’ve never looked back. Great skill to have. Thank you
