Here you can see the Herdwick sheep from the Lake District fells being gathered in time for sheering.
At sheering time I help local farmers with wrapping the fleeces after being shorn which allows me to pick the best fleeces for weaving.
After the fleece is carefully hand washed and naturally dried. I card the wool on my drum carder which aligns the fibres and gives a smooth finish to the products when completed.
The wool is then woven onto a peg loom. This is where I create different patterns using different colours and breeds of wool.
