From Highland cow to string

During an exceptionally quiet moment at the Spring show I volunteered to spin some fibre from the gorgeous Highland cows that were enjoying the attention of many visitors to their pen. I had the chance to stroke one or two of them and was surprised at how soft they were. Unfortunately the bag of fibre I was given was not so soft but undeterred I had a go. Suffice to say I ended up with hand spun string!ImageImage

Spring show at Ardingly

A successful day at the show, spun lots of alpaca and chatted to lots of nice people. The wind howled around the marquee and hat wearing was out of the question. More of the same today I fear.
