MRO Art Yarn

From Fleece to Fabulous: Crafting with Purpose

At Moray Reach Out, we believe in the power of hands-on crafting and its ability to change lives. Our Art Yarn isn’t just yarn; it’s a journey of empowerment and transformation.

🐑 Sheep to Skein: Our amazing team, including our staff, volunteers, and trainees, play a part in creating every single skein of Art Yarn. They start right at the beginning, with the shearing of the fleece. It’s a labor of love from start to finish.

❤️ Supporting Mental Health: Creating Art Yarn isn’t just about yarn; it’s about well-being. As our participants tease, card, and hand-spin fleece, they’re not only producing beautiful natural yarn but also finding a sense of purpose and satisfaction. We specialize in Shetland wool, known for its warmth and quality.

🧶 Upcycled Elegance: We’re all about sustainability! Hand in hand with our upcycling project, we offer exquisite hand-crafted wooden buttons that are the perfect finishing touch for your craft projects. It’s the small details that make a big difference.

🐑 Natural Art Yarn: Our flock of Shetland sheep provides us with soft, warm, and chunky wool, ideal for crafting cozy knitwear. It’s nature’s gift, transformed into a creative warm embrace.


A Community of Crafters: Knowledge Sharing and Support

But there’s more to our story than yarn and fleece. We’re a community, and our staff, volunteers and trainees are the backbone of our mission. They’re not just eager to help; they’re thrilled to share their knowledge, support our trainees, and assist our valued customers.

So, whether you’re a seasoned crafter or a newcomer to the world of handmade artistry, you’re welcome to be a part of our creative family. When you choose our Art Yarn, you’re not just buying yarn; you’re weaving a tapestry of empowerment and positivity.

Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey. Let’s create, learn, and grow together.

“I enjoy coming to Moray Reach Out as it helps me to relax and feel part of something bigger. It is also great, as weaving is one of my favourite hobbies.”


“Moray Reach Out has always made me feel welcomed and the part I enjoy most is being in the company of other people.”


“Spinning is really relaxing.”


After being out of work for a few years, I wanted to get back into a work environment were I could make a difference. I found Moray Reach Out and felt that it would be a great place for me. I have always wanted to make vulnerable adults feel empowered and bring some extra positivity into their life’s. It is such awarding work and getting to see the finished product at the end is fantastic.”
