Spindlers2 for beautiful spindles & fibres

for beautiful spindles & fibres

Woolfest - 24 & 25 June 2011

We spent another enjoyable and exhausting two days at Woolfest in Cockermouth. This is Woolfest's sixth year and we have been fortunate enough to have a stall every time.

We sold nearly half of the lovely Bonkers merino/tencel and merino/bamboo blends.

Bonkers fibres come in a lovely range of dyed colours.

We also sold a good number of Forrester, Greensleeves and Spindlewood spindles.

Before the doors were opened, we took a last chance to relax.

The huge number of attendees left us with very little time to browse, though we did manage some shopping in our own right! This Bonkers merino and tencel in Harvest colourway never reached our stall.

I bought this lovely blue fibre from Freyalynn, before it all went.

Oliver Twists' silk is irresistible!

As are Daniela Kloppmann's blends; this one is baby camel and silk.

Some of the show's participants are less willing than others!

But, apart from these, a great time was had by all.
