Shearer Girl Yarns is a small company based on the borders of Kent and East Sussex. The company was started in 2010 by Lydia Hill under the name Shearer’s Girl Yarns. The name was changed in July 2012.

Shearer Girl Yarns specialise in natural fibres. All of the wool used is British, although other fibres such as silk or alpaca may have been imported. Some of the wool is locally sourced and processed, for example the batts and the Sussex Yarn range.

Lydia is passionate about sheep and wool. During the shearing season she can be found on farms around Kent and Sussex shearing sheep and rolling fleeces. Lydia achieved the British Wool Marketing Board Blue Seal Certificate in sheep shearing in 2011.

Lydia writes regularly for YarnMaker magazine. Lydia was also Secretary of the Kent Guild of Spinners, Dyers and Weavers from 2009 to 2012.
