welly wool and boot cuffs

Heres an old fashioned remedy that apparently stops chilblains and blisters! Line the soles of your wellies or walking boots with carded washed fleece for comfort and add boot cuffs for a cosy topping.I make no claims yet about the blisters and chilblains but it certainly feels very comfortable.The idea is currently being tested so watch this space!

Spring is here!

☺☺☺☺Take a look at Fishwick Farms,Silverdale facebook page to see the new arrivals!Really beautiful and very cute!

Hand dyed wool

Here is the hand dyed  sock wool which knits up really well and is soft and hard wearing so both comfortable and durable!It is spun from the fleeces of North Country Cheviot and Masham sheep on the farms in Silverdale and Yealand Conyers.We've taken inspiration from the land and seascape for the shades used, representing sea,sand,sky ,woodland and famous Morecambe Bay Sunsets!

'Old Hat'
 
I'm really enjoying making these felted 1920's style cloche hats as I can play with wool and also have a good excuse to go to junk shops,charity shops ,vintage and antiques markets sourcing bits to decorate them with.So I have a collection of old buttons and beads, costume jewelry,pieces of old lace and flowers from hats and lots more!
