Our products

At Moray Reach Out, we take pride in crafting every single MRO product with care, right from the very beginning to the final touches. What makes it even more special is that our amazing trainees, along with our dedicated staff and volunteers, are the creative minds and hands behind it all.

Our team has a knack for upcycling pallet wood into unique and bespoke items for your garden and home. It's not just about making stuff; it's about giving new life to materials and making something beautiful in the process.

And let's not forget our fantastic Art Yarn! We start from scratch, from shearing the wool, to teasing it, and finally spinning it into the loveliest yarn. The best part? We use Shetland Sheep fleece from our very own flock and support other local farmers too. It's all about creating something special from the heart. 🌟

A very special moment for Matthew - he is hanking the wool from his very first spin.
It was washed, teased, carded, spun, plyed and hanked all by the man himself 👏😍😍
