This weekend saw the fourth Unravel show at Farnham Maltings and I spent a lovely few hours there yesterday browsing through all the wonderful stalls packed with gorgeous wool, and related bits and bobs.
I took lots of photos, some of them a bit blurry but hope they give a taste of the show.
Lots of stalls selling hand dyed wool of all types. From alpaca to mohair and all sorts of rare breeds.
My favourite was the Natural Dye Studio where I drooled over the array of skeins in mouth watering colours. The blankets made from their wool were stunning, my photos don't really capture the beautiful natural softness and glowing colours. I bought a 100g skein of 4 ply "Dazzling", and a copy of their crochet motifs book, though I've no idea what I'm going to make yet!
There was a Best in Show competition being set up when I was there. I loved this patchwork hanging basket filled with knitted flowers
And this Noah's Ark and basket of flowers
The knitted farm on display was cute.
And these beautiful lacy scarves for sale on the Selvedge magazine stand made me want to chuck out my double knit wool and try something finer, though I know I probably haven't the patience!
Lots more of course, but I'll leave you with a pic' of my other goodies. A vintage basket and some pieces of felted wool for crafting. Another crochet book! Some cute ceramic buttons and a pretty felted wool 'phone case. Should keep me occupied for a while :)
Also spent the afternoon tidying my greenhouse and getting ready for the new season. Love this time of year!
