My alpaca slipover is nearly finished and I wound my organic merino sock wool yesterday. It was dyed using logwood and the organic walnuts I gathered at Montbreton. G dropped a hint that he fancied a pair of socks in it – and a little start has been made. This morning was the first day I have been out since our big chill started, but the wool parcels have to go! it is bright and sunny, but it was -5C when we got up.
