A song for Wool Week

Sound artist Felicity Ford has been in Shetland for Wool Week and has written a song all about the isles and the wool produced here. Enjoy...

And while we are on the subject of Wool Week, here are some pictures of spinning with Deborah Gray. My first attempt at yarns is lumpy and interesting, but it is all mine and I am proud of it. I now know a whole lot more about yarns than I did before and have a new-found respect for spinners and spinning. In Deborah's classes we learnt how to sort fleece, spindle spin, use a spinning wheel and create art yarns. I am very impressed!
