Fibre Experience Day – 16th March 2019

60.00

Come to Fernhill Farm for a day of relaxing fibre craft. Use fleece and yarn from our sheep's wool to make a tuffet on a peg loom, and a French-knitted snood. You'll also get a chance to meet some of the sheep that provide the wool and see where they're shorn.

Two craft sessions will provide time to work with your hands, chat with fellow lovers of wool, and quiet your mind.

Peg-loom tuffets

This simple form of weaving uses our raw fleece to create a textured tuffet that can be used as a cushion for sitting by a campfire or on a picnic. USe our naturally coloured fleece to create patterns of stripes or gradients. 

French-knitted snoods

This is an oversized version of French knitting, using both our dyed and naturally coloured yarns in various weights and textures to create a light, airy neckwarmer. 

Lunch will be provided, along with tea and coffee throughout the day.

All materials will be provided for the workshops

If you wish to create your own “sheep day” here with us please do contact us with your ideas thanks
