Fleeces, crafts, demonstrations, talks & information
Fleeces & Wool:
There will a nice selection of raw fleeces at the fair from local flocks. A great opportunity for crafters to buy fleece directly from the people who raise and care for the sheep. Similarly, it is a great opportunity for smallholders and shepherds to sell their fleeces to local spinners and crafters and learn more about desired qualities in a fleece.
If you don’t feel up to tackling a whole fleece there will also be on offer wool/fleece in smaller quantities, in its various processed stages. From washed locks to carded batts, roving & beautiful handspun yarn.
Crafts & Demonstrations:
We have several local artisan crafters coming to the fair. There will be lots of local artisan craft stalls to browse. As well as demonstrations on washing fleece, carding, spinning, weaving, felting & more!
Talks & Information:
We will be joined by Hilary Kehoe of PONT – Pori, Natur a Threftadaeth (Grazing, Nature and Heritage) who will be running an information stall.
