.... was a grand day out. Thanks to Ali who drove us across country, we arrived in between showers and were soon amongst the whole fleecy felty yarny bazaar that is Woolfest. Bigger again this year, with more stalls to pore over, it has a very happy atmosphere. Well, it's obvious really - offer a mass of textile-obsessed folk an opportunity to see and feel and buy everything they love and there are bound to be good vibes flying about!
As ever there was more to see that I first thought, and I missed a few favourites while spotting new suppliers.
Namolio is the trading name of the stand pictured above which I thought one of the most restrained and elegant on the day. As well as selling covetable linen yarns, the stall holder had beautifully made items from lavender bags to needle holders in her trademark grey linen with coloured crochet embellishment.
