With YouTube around, there are so many great videos that give us a glimpse into the world beyond our front doors.
Objectlab, the video series, from Chipstone.org has made available many videos that are part of the world of wool.
Here is a wonderful video I had to share about Cushendale Woolen Mills. Cushendale Woolen Mills is located in Graignamanagh, Co. Kilkenny, Ireland and still uses turn-of-the-century manufacturing techniques to produce fine wool.
The film focuses on the mill and one of the local farms with Zwartbles wool.
Zwartbles is a breed of sheep which originates from The Netherlands. The fleece comes in a natural brown shade, with excellent crimp, making it superb for felting. The fiber is around 30-32 Microns.
Gather your knitting or spinning and your cup of tea for about 6 minutes of wool delight.
Until next time…
