Wonderwool Wales 2014

Hand-spun yarn, dyed roving and a tote...


                         ...gloriously-colored variegated merino and new knitting needles...



                                    ...pencil roving, notecards and pre-felt snippets...

                 ...a shawl pin, commercial pre-felt and a sweet linen needle case...


                       ...variegated and 'tweedy' linen yarns and a huge sheet of mulberry silk...                      


                                     ...spools of luscious silk thread and buttons...     
         

                                           ...dyed cocoons and silk carrier rods...



                                       ...and some lovely grey BFL/silk blend roving.

                              (Can you believe that all of these festival 'acquisitions'...

                                           ...fit into my already stuffed luggage?) :)




Wonderwool Wales...

                                       ...is a 'festival of Welsh wool and natural fibres'.

                                             I was lucky enough to attend this year...

                                      ...with great friends, Pearl and Deborah...


                                               ...and it was truly spectacular!!

                                                     Next time: booth photos!
