I couldn't manage to do this without my siblings strength and siblings cars!.Great fun in the heatwave with lots of lovely wool from the Fishwick Farms Flock of conservation grazer sheep .All went smoothly despite the heat until it came to the couriers collecting the bagged fleece to go to the spinning mill.They should have collected on the Friday but didn't,so we had 5 bags of raw fleece in the kitchen,in a heatwave,all weekend ....imagine how popular I've been!

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 !
