Thank you very much to the Llŷn Guild for their hospitality in hosting a "sampling day" provided by Wingham Wools. A little group of Abergele spinners travelled to Penygroes yesterday (thanks to Hilary for driving!) in the bitter, bitter cold, and we had a very good time. Wingham's sampling days provide a wonderful opportunity to test-drive fibre before buying - and what an excellent selection there was: from finest cashmere to recycled plastic bottles, via merino, silk, yak, many British sheep breeds and goat - (very hairy!). It was lovely, too, to meet up with old friends whom we hadn't seen for years.
