A Crafter in Wool

This is our friend Carolyn who was at Blenheim Palace at the weekend. We haven't seen her much lately as she and husband Glyn moved down to Cornwall a few years ago to a 30 acre farm where they keep bees, Saddleback pigs and have a flock of Jacob sheep. She cards spins and dyes the wool then uses it to make fantastic jumpers and demonstrates the venerable and ancient craft of Feltmaking at shows.

These are some of her felt bags.

Glyn and Carolyn also run a Bed & Breakfast at Largin Farm twixt Liskeard and Lostwithiel which backs onto Ancient Woodland. She also runs courses in hand spinning and feltmaking.
If you fancy a break or are in the area you will always be assured of a warm and friendly welcome. You can email them here
