Woolfest 2016

We had a great time at Woolfest last week, the weather was mostly very kind and sunny, we even stopped for a picnic by Bassenthwaite lake on the way there. It was especially kind on the Saturday night when it held off raining hard until we’d packed the van!

On the Saturday morning we had a time for a very quick look round and I just had to take these few photos.


Very sweet Herdwicks, they seemed a little shy but they’re so lovable.


Hebridean sheep resolutely refused to pose for us.


This Ryeland is adorable, I wanted to bring her home.

We had a run in with a swallow whilst there. There was a nest not too far away, right over one of the aisles, lots of opportunity to dive bomb visitors you’d think except, the cheeky chap preferred to sit on the blue piping above our stall. Nine hits he scored over the two days, 5 on the tablecloth, one on the shelving and three direct hits on fibre (his aim was improving). We counted ourselves lucky we remained untargeted.
