Wool Week Challenge.

Wool Week has come fast and I would like to share with you all the events I will be taking part in in order to progress in the making of 1000 sheep.

In preparation to Wool Week, I have travelled to Calais to work with Debbie Bramford from the Mulberry Dyers; In a couple of days, we madder dyed more than 25kg of wool (half of the total wool needed) in her gorgeous Self created  Dye House.
