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 hereI 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.
