This time last week I was at Woolfest. What was different about Woolfest to any other big textile event that I have been to, is that there is a very strong emphasis on thinking out where we get our yarns from.
There were adorable animals galore, a rare breed parade, sheep sheering demonstrations, plus so many fleeces, fibres and yarns to see.
You can find out more about the flock of sheep pom poms here. I came away with some beautiful wool from Jillybean Yarns, a very pretty Bluefaced Leicester and Gotland sheep mix. Woolfest is held in a very pretty part of the world, and I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in using natural fibres.
