fleece collection day

 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!

Warping in the kitchen!

I'm putting a new warp onto my rigid heddle loom so I can weave cloth for another ruana.I occupy the kitchen for a few hours to get this done!

British Wool Fashion Show


Heres a couple of images from the Royal 3 Counties Show in Malvern British Wool Fashion Show.Too hot for the model to wear the cloche hat I sent but apparently the bag and ruana were much admired by members of the cast of The Archers,Adam Henson from Countryfile  and Philip Serrel of the Antiques Road Trip!!
