Unravel in Farnham, British yarn and buttons

with 10 Comments

I think that for this event I will let the photos speak for themselves. I had a great day with Cecile who also wrote about the event on Ways of the Whorl and I bought some lovely colourful yarn and a swift that I am already making good use of.

    Hi there, I am trying to contact a business that appears in one of your pictures from the Unravel Festival in Farnham in Feb 2011. I am trying to reach One of a Kind to buy some more wool to complete a project. Can you please post any contact details if you have them, many thanks, Amy

    ooh what shawl did you start with the laceweight from Well Manor Farm?

      I began the Raindrop shawl by Renee Strouts. The yarn is amazingly soft and wonderful.
