This past weekend I participated in the 4to Observatorio Cultural. It was hard work, (long days and cold), but a lot of fun!
I carded different breeds of sheep’s wool, alpaca, and mohair and then spun them on my wheel and drop spindle. People were amazed by the different textures and how the “fluffy fibre” was transformed into a yarn.
Here are a few pictures of some of the stalls; jewellery, honey, shoes, felted clothes, yarn, and plants are just some of the things that were on sale.
More photos can be seen on Creatif’s facebook page for the 4to Observatorio Cultural.
And I have a small confession to make. I have a guilty pleasure that goes against all my woolly work…and it is called polar fabric.
As much as I love spinning wool from my sheep and goats, I find it hard to wear around my neck. Luckily my husband has no problem and he has a great selection of wool and mohair scarves. I, however, live in polar clothes in the winter. So when I saw this cape at the fair I couldn’t resist.
And depending how I wear the hood I either look like the grim reaper or little red riding hood!
