Welcome to the Orkney Angora website

The home of responsibly sourced angora and angora products in the UK

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. Elizabeth very sadly passed away in July 2017 but the business continues with William at the helm.

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.
