Woolfest - 22 & 23 June 2012

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

We sold a good quantity of the lovely Bonkers merino/tencel, merino/bamboo and (new!) merino/silk blends.

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

Including a post-Woolfest sale, we sold all my "My Precious" batts; a new venture for us. As I indulged myself by buying a new drum carder from Classic Carders, our neighbouring stall, these had better not be the last batts that I produce!

Except for that extravagance, I bought just this lovely dyed blend of baby camel and silk from Daniela Kloppmann's Felt Studio UK.

The weather, especially on the Friday, was atrocious this year. Several people who were camping had their tents washed away and we were lucky not to be flooded in the chalet where we were staying. Apart from that, we had a wonderful time as usual.
