Just back from my first trip to Ickworth House. The wonders of google maps got me there and back again. I used to always get lost when driving to somewhere new, till their inception, wonderful invention.
I went there planning to buy fleece and perhaps a spindle. I got a mixed woodlands and something…the ram got out and a variety of mixed offspring were the result. It is a shearling fleece of Browns and white. Should spun up nicely. I also got my spindle, a rather pretty one. The stall holder gave me a few tips too, to improve my spindle spinning.
I fell for a mini weaving loom, for small tapestry pictures. More convenient for in front of the TVs. Will mean I can make a fee much smaller pieces, and sell for a lower price too.
A small show, but I came away with all that I needed. One to bookmark for next year.
