I was aware that River Cottage produced some wool from their own sheep a few years back, but had never seen or ben able to buy it. Two balls popped up on e-bay the other day, so I went for them. The label reads River Cottage organic wool, 50g natural fleece colour, handwash knit as DK. Soil Association organic logo on. It was spun at the Natural Fibre Co in Cornwall. The price label read £3.50 each ball, and I paid £4, reckon that was a good bargain. Only two balls, but will make a rather nice hat. Only downpoint is that there is no indication of breed of sheep given, which would have been nice.
Wee bit of vintage glam for a Sunday
