Goodness me Amber....I cannot remember the last time I saw so much wool and the colours are to dye for! I suspect you were in your element amongst it all.

Thanks for taking me there too.
I managed to go to Woolfest for the Friday a couple of years ago, but work has got in the way since. It looks better than ever.

OOh, this is bringing back lovely memories. I bought some of those multi-coloured hiking socks from the woolclip for my husband and he tested them out on the Cumbrian Fells on sunday. Apparently they feel as good as they look.
