Interview with Yvonne Lancaster founder of Welan


Empowering Women Entrepreneurs in sparsely populated communities across northern Europe.

W-Power works with women entrepreneurs in sparsely populated areas across northern Europe and the Arctic rim, encouraging them to set-up, develop and grow their businesses. The project seeks to achieve this through capacity building and providing opportunities for transnational connections and learning.

W-Power Inspiring Women in Business Podcast shares the stories of some of the amazing women who are part of this project and their journeys in business.

My guest today is Yvonne Lancaster founder of Welan, wooly hats. Based on the Isle of Tiree, Yvonne first took in an orphaned lamb, and then one turned into a small flock, requiring shearing each year. So to give them a long and happy life Welan was born, using sustainable wool and creating handmade woolly hats sold direct from the Isle.
