Dartmoor Mohair

My name is Susan Vicary-Smith. I am a weaver/goat herder living on the edge of Dartmoor.

The colours and patterns from the moor, streams and woods surrounding the farm is inspiration for my individual rugs woven on an upright floor loom.

I weave with mohair and wool from my own herd of Angora goats and a flock of Ryeland sheep.

These are the Ryeland ewes, in their maternity unit earlier this year.
