Fishwick Farms



I've posted this image of sheep on the farm at Silverdale before and yes those little white dots are sheep!This farm is where most of my fleeces come from and have done for years but to see some much better pictures of how farm animals should look and proper farming is done go to Fishwick Farms on Facebook and also find out about the new venture for the Fishwick family at Low Bankside Farm,Cark. I always know I'm getting top quality fleeces from here and  now with 2 farms I can have even more and still have the Morecambe Bay Brand on the wool.

New loom



Look at my new loom bought at an auction.It needs some fettling but its a lovely little thing.There were howls of anguish and cries of 'no room for another loom' when I said I'd bought it but things calmed down a bit  when it arrived........ weaving width about 6" !!

wool gathering

Here we have one of this years 'pet lambs' at the farm in Silverdale very noisily trotting around while we packed the fleeces into the car.A selection of crossbred North Country Cheviot and Blue faced Leicesters fleeces.All beautiful and huge!
Lots of triplet lambs this year so plenty of bottle feeding.I'll have their fleeces next year!

The first 3 bags ready to go to the spinning mill.About 40kgs in there.....and still more to go.
