As always we had a wonderful array of varied stalls selling yarn, fibre, beads, notions, crafting tools and beautiful hand-made woolly items.
You can see some pictures of the event anddetails about all our lovely stallholders below.
4 Sheepish Women
4 women who keep sheep bring the woolly products of their holdings to market, including ‘vegetarian’ sheepskin rugs and tuffets, peg loom weaving products and yarn. The yarn is spun from Shetland, Greyfaced Dartmoor, Welsh Mountain and Zwarbles sheep from a holding on Dartmoor. The ‘vegetarian’ sheepskins (made by shearing the sheep and then felting the back of the fleece, so nobody dies in the process) and peg loom weaves are from Cornish holdings, including rare breed fleeces.
Suri are the 'rare breed' of the alpaca world with different fleece and fibre characteristics to the more common huacaya alpaca. Alpaca Yarns have fine suri alpaca fleece for spinning, natural British suri alpaca yarns for knitting, crochet & weaving in balls and on cones. The yarn is spun in a UK mill specialising in suri and in a worsted process. Also some great knitting and crochet kits to make stylish accessories & exquisite handcrafted items.

The Yarny Octopus
Hand Dyed Luxury Yarns made in small batches from the Wild West of Cornwall. Inspired by the rugged beauty of the far west coastline, from the majestic granite cliff tops, moorland heather, gorse and bracken through to the secluded fishing coves and beaches. Our yarns are dyed in small batches of 3 - 5 skeins on a range of exciting bases. The resulting colour ways in both natural and acid dye's make them unique for all your yarny projects.
I sell 100% hand processed and hand dyed curly wool and locks, from my own non-slaughter flock of rare breeds - Teeswaters, Wensleydales and Devon and Cornwall Longwools, and mohair from my herd of angora goats. All my own fibre can be traced back to the named sheep or goat it came from! I also buy fleeces from local farms I've visited to ensure superb animal welfare standards.
