What a fantastic time we had yesterday! A friend and I spent the entire day immersed in woolly goodness at the rather wonderful Wonderwool Wales, a festival of welsh wool and natural fibres where we made some fluffy new friends….
and admired some woolly beauties…
We oohed and aahed over the creations of talented designers as they strutted their stuff on the ‘sheepwalk’….
and oohed and aahed some more at all the yummy yarns on offer.
…rather a lot of raw alpaca fibre in gorgeous natural shades…
…a new lightweight hand-turned spindle plus handcarders…
…a little light reading…..
…and some natural dyes from Pure Tinctoria.
I think this little lot should keep me busy for a little while! I also got to take a closer look at some wheels and think that I might have finally reached a decision and, if everything goes to plan, I will be the proud owner of my very own spinning wheel very soon!
Oh how I wish every weekend was a wonderwool weekend!
