Crafted comfort 〰️
We have been getting our fforest blankets woven specially for us to keep our guests warm since we first opened the doors here 11 years ago this Easter.
How time flies.
Many things have evolved and many improvements are continually being made here @fforest but this old traditional heritage way of weaving on a 1930’s Dobbcross loom needs no tinkering with. Each thread of pure new wool is put through the heddles by hand, as it always was. I’ve just come back from the mill, I love to hear the sound of the loom weaving.
The charcoal and cloud colour-way is one of my favourites, what would be yours?
I have been lucky enough to get hold of this absolutely beautiful Welsh Tapestry today. Currently giving it some TLC in the sink 👌 When it’s ready for action I’ll let you know. I know it’s going to make some beautiful purses, really nice emerald green & magenta combo!
There appears to be a problem with our farm organic pest control department....... I think they are on strike!
Two blues, snuggled up in one of @sheepsheddesign beautiful baskets, avoiding any thoughts of going outside.
Whilst ginger Tom, Tiger is also avoiding all eye contact!
Who needs a weather forecast.....these guys are the only weather predicters we need........ If it's going to be another wet day they are in, if its going to be cold and wet they are in and completely ignore me. Where as if its nice I don't see them.
