And so it begins . . .
The sun is shining, the air is sweet and fresh and this is the perfect time of year for washing and drying raw fleece, from beautiful sheep like Bronwyn, a lovely curly Cotswold who lives near Bath.
Once dried and separated her curls are soft and lustrous . . .
Much of my inspiration comes from the garden and at present it is presenting me with roses . . .
and tiny Wild Strawberries . . .
All these beautiful warm colours are finding their way into my work . . .
Here’s a big basket of hand-dyed curls from Caradog a beautiful kid Angora goat.
I’m looking forward to getting back to my spinning wheel again soon and making some soft and curly yarns so, watch this space . . . .!
