I received a message from the lovely Claire Crompton and I thought I ought to share the Devon exhibition she mentioned, so that you can pop by and see it.
Fleece First features the work of several contemporary textile makers whose raw material is wool as well as exhibits from the South West wool industry, past and present.

Dates: 24th September to 13th November, 10am to 5.30pm every day. There will be demonstrations of weaving every Saturday and handspinning every Sunday.
Images from the opening day can be viewed here, featuring some very relaxed Ryeland sheep: Fleece First Album
Ryeland... aren't they beautiful?!
I'm hoping to go myself quite soon... maybe I'll see you there?
