Last weekend I made my way to Wonderwool Wales on the Royal Welsh show grounds in Builth Wells for a day of yarny goodness!

This was the third Wonderwool I had been too, and as usual it was full of varying stalls selling items from fleece to finished products. Armed with a short list of things I would like, I made my way round, once to look and at least once to buy!

I found some beautiful chinese tribal batik’s and embroidery at Slow Loris Textiles. Martin Conlan the stall owner told us a lot about the origins of the textiles and how they were meticulously created.

I spent most of the day trying to avoid being tempted by fleece and other such fibers. I was very aware that I still have about 8kgs of fleece in the utility which needs using first. But I did get a small amount of raw pink silk (as I needed it) to finish off a dress that is far from being finished.

As usual I had a wonderful time and came home excited for next years Wonderwool!
