About Us

Tease and Spin is situated in a traditional cottage in the heart of the Edale Valley in the beautiful English Peak District. The village is well known to walkers as the start of the popular Pennine Way trail and as an access point onto Kinder Scout, scene of the historic Mass Trespass in 1932.

Tease and Spin is dedicated to ensuring that traditional skills, such as the hand spinning and dyeing of wool, are not lost. Demand for cheap, mass produced goods has forced a decline in these skills in recent years. There is now a resurgence of interest, as the quality and uniqueness of handcrafted goods is being recognised.

Tease and Spin promotes the use of local resources, such as wool from local Whitefaced Woodland sheep.

Whitefaced Woodland sheep are a breed native to an area of the southern Pennines where the counties of Derbyshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire meet.
