Good to Be Home

The trip to the 8th World Congress of Coloured Sheep in France was very special and a great education into other sheep breeds and how people are re-claiming the value of wool in their cultures.

 

However, it is good to be home and back to my own wool pursuits:

 

Washing fleeces….

Dark brown Soay yarn from the UK brought to the Congress and my hand spun Herdwick. A shawl is being planned!

And, of course, being welcomed home by the producers of all that lovely fiber!

It’s good to be back!
