Felt a Fleece

with Ann Ross

Help conserve UK heritage sheep breeds, particularly those which are traditionally farmed and still support their local communities.

In the present economic climate, due to transportation costs and poor cash returns many farmers just burn or dispose of their fleeces.

On this one-day workshop you will find out how to felt one of these wonderful unwashed fleeces to make a small chair cushion or a complete rug.

Requirements

Unwashed fleece or piece of fleece – make sure it is fairly compact on the back – not too many holes.  (I will have some available.)

I will have Shetland tops for sale for the felted backing.

We will be working outdoors so wet-weather clothing might be required!

Price: £60
