Lovely speckled grey wool from a 'one off' fleece and a Cheviot/Leicester fleece from the Silverdale Flock..Only 2 fleeces so not a lot of wool and I'd like to keep some for myself this time!
The Pepperpot is a well known landmark in the Arnside/Silverdale area.
Here are some of the rovings I have from the conservation grazer sheep in Silverdale.Beautiful for handspinners! Jacobs,Black Welsh and Cheviot/Leicester also organic grown Lonk rovings from the flock in The Forest of Bowland. I don't get to do as much spinning as I used to so if anyone is interested let me know!
The shabby chic shed is to be made waterproof to store fleeces as the garage has been taken over by the woodworking and gardening group at the commune! It will be useful extra space and I'm always complaining I need more room! But I'm worried about the hedgehog family who reside under the shed
The first signs of Autumn!
I'm starting to prepare for Wool Week in October,I like pompoms I really do but so far I've made 96 to edge handknit lap throws so I think I'll have a break and get on with another project!
See where most of my fleeces come from! Its Open Farm Sunday with Fishwick Farms at Low Bankside,Cartmel LA11 7NR. on June 9th.I know it will be a great day! Loads to see and do,nice farm,nice animals,nice family,and I wish I could be there!
