Spinning and knitting projects

The long evenings are great for doing bigger projects like spinning or knitting jumpers. Perhaps listen to your favourite podcast or audiobook.

I have been spinning since I was a child. Our mother set up each of us (6 children ) with a spinning wheel! We also had our own sheep so we wore their coats!

I have spun and knitted my parent’s sheep’s wool all through my childhood and for my own children making them each a sheep’s wool and alpaca jumper in different shades. If you would like a bigger quantity of hand spun wool please contact me below.

All you need is a stick and a potato or apple stuck in.

Below are links to kits to make lambs and chickens.
