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.
