When ordering from Orkney Angora you are dealing with a small, family run business situated in one of Orkney’s most northerly isles.

This unusual cottage industry was established, from the ruins of a derelict croft, by William & Elizabeth Sichel, in the spring of 1982.


   The natural resource most freely available here, off the north coast of Scotland, is wind and plenty of it. Orkney Angora makes use of clean, wind      generated power for all their business activities such as the hand dyeing and the hank and ball winding operations.


Our spinners use angora fibre from approved sources, visited and personally inspected by William (February 2014) where humane methods of husbandry and shearing are practiced. For more information click here

William and Elizabeth personally supervise all aspects of the business in Orkney and maintain the high quality standards which have seen their enterprise grow so substantially over the years.
