Postcard from Wonderwool Wales 2017

What a great day. By the time stallholders were starting to cash up I really didn't want to leave. It was at that point I took the long shots of the room, giving the impression that there weren't many people there. But the opposite is the case, it really had been heaving during the day.

I don't seem to have taken many pictures of the exhibitors this time. I guess I was just too focussed on the offerings.








These two purchases were made for each other. Another spindle from IST was inevitable, and I've long wanted a Russian support spindle. These bowls were beautiful and this one just about matched this spindle. The fibre is camel/silk from Freyalyn, dyed the most beautiful gold colour.

Lovely photos, I seem to miss so much as a stallholder even if I do go wandering around. Great to see you.

Thanks Freyalyn, it's always lovely to see you too. My fibre is AWESOME! It drafts amazingly well and the colour is 'to dye for'!

I don't think you'd see everything even if you spent all day away from your stand! lol. And the layout there makes it a bit tricky to be sure that you've seen everything.
