Manic wool cutting describes the last few weeks! We cut 1400 packs for Riverford Organics
for their meat boxes that go from Devon all over the UK. The boxes and wool packs are then collected and reused umpteen times.....good is reuse....goes with reduce and recycle and the boxes and plastic are recycled consumer waste and the wool is local thereby reducing fibre miles!
We are now well on the way to the start of machine cutting of wool....watch this space!
We are also working on......yoga mats, felt boots and wormery mats!!! More ideas please, we have loads of wool.
The washer is up and going after a hitch caused by me and an allen key.....doh! Resulted in a very costly spare part coming from Canada..........however it arrived in less than 48 hours....why oh why can I not get post to shift so quickly within Britain??
At the weekend we went to the Smallholders Show at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells. We met loads of amazing people, sold lots of wool and lambskins, took lots of orders and came home very tired but happy!
This pic is of my stand!
