a really fabulous place to go if you are
even remotely interested in all things woolly
handmade, unique items, great crafts people
beautifully made felt animals and figures

a great place to buy a new spinning wheel at
...more of this later

pretty vintage and screen printed fabric bags
notebooks and purses by mud rabbit
and some real rabbits too
beautiful clothing made from organic welsh wool
a new venture for the lovely ladies
organically hand dye yarns
make the most gorgeous knitwear
and are soil assocaition approved
as is this lovely natural wool by

and yes...the burial cloud
or cosy coffins, as they have been dubbed
 beautifully handmade, thick wool ...a sort of sleeping bag
the ultimate exit if you want a very eco send off
...and if like me
you love all things woolly
