We've been having a great lambing season here at Home Farm Wensleydales, and thought many of you may appreciate an update on how things are going.
Our Bluefaced Leicesters and Wensleydales have given us some wonderful lambs, and we are waiting on just three more.
At the weekend, we travelled to Wales for the Wonderwool festival. The timing was tight, but fortunately Laxtons delivered the first batch of our DK yarn to the the festival the day before we started, and we were absolutely delighted to have been able to include this on our stall. The DK comes from our 2015 shear, and we really love how the colours and yarn itself has turned out.
This was our first main show of the spring, and throughout summer we will be attending a wide variety of shows throughout the country.
The yarn is in on our website, selling at £6.50 / 50g.
As well as just washed so natural, we have the most amazing subtle colours of Cotswold Stone, Burford Blue, Moreton Sage and Arlescote Blush.
Bringing some of our sheep to the festival, and having them alongside our stall, was fun - and despite a few excitable Wensleydales trying their hand at hurdle jumping to meet our customers in person, it went very well indeed!
