Last Saturday was the day of our annual trip to Wonderwool Wales up in Builth Wells. I’ve been looking forward to it for months (well, since last year really!) and it didn’t disappoint! I usually completely forget to take pictures, so I did a little bit better, although I was to excited to remember all the time!
There were a few stalls that had brought livestock with them. I didn’t get a photo of the angora bunnies, but here are some alpacas…
…and a Pickwick Cotswold ewe and her lamb.
A pair of suri alpacas.
My first stall stop was with Sara’s Texture Crafts as I’d seen some fibre on her instagram feed that was calling my name! I was able to introduce myself, what a lovely person she is!
And here are the three fibre purchases plus the book I got from her.
My next stop was at the John Arbon stall, and as ever, with those barrels of gorgeous fibre, it was very busy. However, I managed to get a good haul of lovelies, including some undyed fibre to try out for the shop.
My John Arbon purchases…
I visited lots of other stalls – Spin City is a shop that I’ve admired on Etsy.com before, and I was able to get some fibre that had been on my wish list!
P&M Woolcraft had their usual mountain of fluffy temptations, and Wingham Wool Work sucked me in with their gorgeous range of colourways (although I did manage to resist the carders and other equipment that they were selling!).
And finally, Hilltop Cloud had so much to choose from, it was really hard to narrow it down! I don’t think I did much, actually, but who could hold back with such gorgeous items available?!
The exhibition pieces were great, but I only got pictures of two; the cardigan for Cardigan and the knitted gingerbread house in aid of the Welsh Air Ambulance.
It was a brilliant day, and I’m looking forward to next year already! One of these years I’ll have a stall there myself, that’s my ambition!
