The Little Wool Company reaches out on Crowdfunder to raise £3500 for business capital. This will be used for creating a new website, printing brochures and processing more fibre for new products

Help The Little Wool Company realise their dreams in the next step of their development

Ruth Strickley of Devon based The Little Wool Company says we have had some support but we need much more if we are to reach our target and it’s really important because it’s very difficult for small businesses to gain funding in the usual way. Our own products are from our own animals and processed in the UK. You can join our journey and support my project here

Ruth Strickley went on to say “I don’t expect something for nothing and so I am offering rewards for pledges. There are a range of rewards (something to suit every budget) from gift vouchers to spend on my new website, knitting kits, gift baskets and luxury alpaca bedding. Everyone who pledges will also be entered into an end of project raffle which will be held if I hit target. Therefore there are lots of opportunities to receive a lovely alpaca treat.

Crowdfunder is the UK’s largest rewards-based crowdfunding network having launched more than 4000 projects and raised over £2m – helping people make their great ideas a reality.

Crowdfunder works by offering the crowd the opportunity to pledge to a project in return for a reward.
Phil Geraghty, Crowdfunder MD, said: “Crowdfunder is about bringing communities together to make great ideas a reality.”
“Janine Thomas said: “Good luck with your project, you deserve it as you have great products. It’s great to see The Little Wool Company get this far, I can’t wait for them to reach 100% so that I can receive my reward”

About British Family

We are the Bradshaw family, well known advocates of buying British. As seen on national TV, radio & in the press.

We are the Bradshaw’s from Kent. A normal British family in every way except that we have, inadvertently, become a leading consumer voice supporting British manufacturing and farming. Our regular appearances on the TV and in the press, documenting our own personal struggles to buy British, we hope, have inspired others to also support their local and domestic producers.

Since we took the unusual challenge of trying to survive on only British made goods back in January 2013 we have seen a wealth of food & drink, clothing & consumables and gadgets & gizmos all made in Britain. We have found that manufacturing in the UK isn’t dead – in fact quite the opposite. We are still a creative, talented and entrepreneurial nation… and that fact needs recognising.

Our message is about celebrating Britain’s hardworking, but often overlooked, manufactures and farmers and the great things they make. In our blog you will find interviews, reviews, videos, recipes and practical guides on the best that Britain has to offer.

We are the organisers of The British Family Fayre, run The Britipedia directory of British made goods and administrate the most widely used logo for British made goods.

Our message: Buy British and support UK manufacturing!
