'Whitewell' Wool

At last I'm managing to show some images of last years wool.This is wool from the lovely Lonk sheep living organically in the Forest of Bowland with just a little help from the addition of a small amount of Bluefaced Leicester fleece from the same farm which makes it a Single Farm Yarn. 
The handwoven piece the yarn is on is the Lonk wool woven with 'Cartmel' Black Welsh/Cheviot wool from Morecambe Bay. Oh yes and the little picture is of the Lonk Flock !

These lovely ruanas were woven for me by Jane Flanagan with tailoring and stitching by Jean Roberts.
 I'm weaving for 2 more  one for the Silverdale and Arnside Art Trail at the end of June and one for the British Wool Fashion Show taking place at The Royal Three Counties Show,Malvern on the 15th,16th and 17th of June.I've been invited to send something to this event by Griffiths Mill in Derbyshire who are the wool spinners for my Silverdale and Arnside wool.
A busy few weeks weaving I think!

Spring clear up

I've been doing some re organizing and these wire shelves are brilliant! Not beautiful but practical and I now have my yarn all stored so that I can see just what I've got and its given me much more space to work in.Only problem ...... there's no sea view !!

More Hats !

I've finished these felted wool cloche hats with old lace,tweed flowers,vintage costume jewellery and shoe buckles.I love making them,searching junk shops,markets and charity shops for the 'right' embellishments but now I'm not sure I want to part with them!
