The Letterbox Herd and the National Trust at Stourhead

NT-Stourhead-ShopAfter almost a year of planning and knitting The Letterbox Herd are very proud to be suppliers of alpaca yarn products to the shop at The National Trust’s Stourhead property. Stourhead is one of the most prestigious and successful properties the Trust owns with 400,000 visitors each year.

The manager of the shop is keen to support local suppliers and Letterbox produce is on sale alongside pottery, sweets, and cards where distinctive labelling sets it aside from more commercial products. The range includes bootees, hats, scarves and will soon be joined by some felted items. The yarn is mainly left in natural state but some has been acid dyed to produce vibrant jewel like colours and everything is hand knitted at home in Dorset. Each item is sold with a leaflet telling something of the story of The Letterbox Herd.
