Armfuls of yarn ready for grandma to knit

Nancy and Nelly were not expected to survive.  Both orphan lambs, they were hand reared by caring staff at Wroxham Barns before securing a place to live with Sally and her family.

Special sheep deserve to have something special made from their fleece, and so Sally asked the Weavers for their help.   It was a pleasure !  We carded, spun, plied and made skeins.  Oh . . . and chatted, laughed, drank tea and ate cake.

Nancy and Nelly’s human family came along to watch the process and went home with armfuls of yarn ready for grandma to knit, and we added our “wages” to the Guild funds.

Thanks to Tim who wielded the kettle, and Susan who popped in with a still-warm home-made cake.  What a team !
