About Orkeney Agora

When ordering Orkney Angora you are supporting a small, family-run business situated in one of Orkney’s most northerly isles. This unusual cottage industry was originally established by William & Elizabeth Sichel, from the ruins of a derelict croft, in the spring of 1982. Following the sad loss of Elizabeth, and over 35 years of running the business, William has decided to move on. The business is now owned by Tracy Ranger, who will continue to run the operation from her smallholding, also on Sanday, and it will remain a very personally run operation.

The natural resource most freely available in Orkney, 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.
