more fleecy finds and another look back to 2015

Hi, once again I've been taking bags of fleece out of the cupboard, two more have gone straight in the bin so todays score so far is :- pillow slip full of Norfolk horn, pillow slip full of  organic merino tops and shetland ? both ready to dye ( john arbons beautiful fibres) bought at wonderwool maybe 3 years ago. 1/2 pillow case polworth (different fleece to that previously found) 1/2 pillow wiltshire horn, 1 pillow blue texel, 1 bag bond lamb black and one bag bond lamb white!!   oohh and 1/2 pillow Shetland.

I know I have two fleeces in the outhouse somewhere that need washing!!

But I have just spotted a 64 litre tub that may just have fibres in it..........

Welcome to 2016, the year of the spinning wheel!!!!!

Back to 2015, we took a few days out in September to visit friends who live in Somerset and to go to the Dismaland Exhibition at West Super Mare but our visit was cut short due to high winds causing damage to some of the exhibits.

I don't comment often, but I want you to know that you keep me inspired to learn how to spin, one of my goals come retirement in June!

I'm so glad that you like the photos, My blog was somewhat abandoned last year but I still had my camera handy... the exhibition was amazing
