All the Fun of The Fair

In preparation for the first ever class I have taught (ahem) I ordered in 40 kgs of Corriedale Wool from Ashfords. It arrived the day before the class - I then proceeded to divide each 1kg into 50gm bags. My shoulder and hand are suffering from RSI as a result and I particularly enjoyed watching "Day of The Triffids" until 2am as I sat winding up wool. Despite the never ending quality of the aforementioned task it wasn't all bad as the colours are divine and the tactile/textile nature of the wool is soothing. Here is a picture of my favourite - it looks like big rolls of Fairy Floss - not suprisingly the name of the colour is Candy Floss.
