This is a place we visited at the weekend - and I bought a couple of balls of wool for a sock project.
Thought their things might interest someone :)

The farm itself - complete with shepp shearing by hand - is here http://www.fernhill-farm.co.uk/
REALLY no more room for vintage machines!  :)

I bet some of that fleece is beautifully soft.  It's a good thing we have hill sheep with coarse fleece only suitable for carpets or insulation or I would be wanting to spin and weave as well as everything else.
We did once have a Shetland cross and I have a waistcoat that I knitted from her fleece that someone spun for me.
Life's too short for ironing.
