I went to Cockermouth today for Woolfest. Usually, I’m so virtuous taking with me a list of items that I need and not buying anything else, not quite sure what went wrong today. I intended to buy this recycled plastic fibre, it makes great sheep and clouds.
I intended to buy this crab fibre. Soft, silky but with a ‘funny’ odour, I’ll let you know how it felts in.
BUT then I was tempted into these coloured nepps, they’re great for adding texture
and ditto these Gotland curls – lovely colour
Imagine my surprise when I was further tempted to this hand dyed Merino in fabulous soft shades so unlike my usual brights
AND then these Polwarth fibres. Polwarth is a breed created by crossing a Merino with a Blue Faced Leicester and then that sheep with a Merino. The fibres are soft and slightly lustrous – I’ll let you know how they felt.
My big fall from grace happened in the first five minutes when I bought …………………….. an organic Gotland sheepskin rug
Aren’t these the most fabulous curls and so soft to the touch. I can’t bear to put it on the floor so it’s on the sofa where I can snuggle up to it. My wonderful husband took all this in his stride for which I’m very thankful.
