Here is another pair of lovely wooley things to celebrate the arrival of Friday!
- This book, Farm to Needle: Stories of Wool put together by Tolt Yarn & Wool. It's a compilation of patterns and stories about the people, producers, and animals that are all working to create beautiful yarn and a sustainable way of life that's at risk of being lost. All sorts of wonderful fiber folk were involved in writing patterns for this book, including Karen Templer & Ashley Yousling.
- If you want a bigger dose of farm to needle action, check out that Hole & Sons yarn. Ben Hole is a farmer on the Isle of Purbeck who gained Instagram fame by simply posting about his rural farming life producing and selling yarn from his own sheep. Keep a look out for a new batches of yarn and be ready at the scheduled time because Hole & Sons yarn sells out within minutes! Read this interview over on the Fringe Assocation about how he got into the yarn business for more wooley fun, too.
