A wonderful day was spent yesterday at Woolfest lots of money spent on lots of lovely wool!
Wensleydale, Jacob, Leicester longwool, Merino, Alpaca, Llama, oh I could have bought lots more, so much choice. The rare breeds show was interesting, the one that stood out though had to be the Valais black nose sheep brought by Jamie Wood, I had never seen this breed before and their fleece is beautiful and they were so calm, they were described as docile sheep by the presenter.
Now I need to dig into my new hoard of fibre and produce some new woolly creations. Woodland Woozles can have some exciting new hair colours and with my alpaca and llama wool I'd like to make alpacas and llamas of course! A few orders to complete and then I can start on those.
If you are lucky when you visit the woods, you may glimpse a Woozle, they live at the base of the trees and hide under leaves, you may see the top of their pointed hat as they shuffle about, but you have to be quiet or you will scare them away. Woozles are shy.
Are you going Woozle spotting this weekend? Look out for Moss and Celandine the new Woodland Woozles. Kits are available at Lowes Court gallery and Santon Bridge gift shop
Here they are, the Woodland Woozles, in the picture we have Sorrel, Stitchwort, Ramson and Elderberry. There are more of these little characters which I will introduce later. They will be in the Lowes Court gallery and Santon Bridge gift shop soon. Also available is a kit to make your own Woodland Woozle.
not bears..... but they are pretty cute, they are gathering in numbers, they will also be available in kits, they are easy peasy to make and I will get some pictures up soon, watch this space !
