Blacker Swan 

Blacker Swan is a joint venture between Blacker Yarns and Andrez and Ali Short who farm at Swan Inlet Farm on the Falkland Islands.

Blacker Yarns have made a pure white, ivory, fawn and grey yarn by blending the merino with some wool from Sue Blacker's black Blue-faced Leicester sheep and some Shetland moorit from Somerset. They have then created 13 lovely dyed colours, named as far as possible after the wild flowers which grow on the Falkland Islands, some of which are very rare.
