Getting ready for Tour de Fleece or spindledon as Wimbledon starts tomorrow

Standard

Carding some of my Jacob fleece in graded rollags. I plan to spin everyday during July joining all the spinners round the world who spin as much as possible during the Tour de France/Fleece. I hope to have enough to make Jonny a winter jumper.

Here’s some of my Rollags, wheel and Jacob sheep with two surprise lambs in the background.

About Fiona Gordon

I am a mother and now a proud grandmother of two beautiful boys. I am married to Jon Lincoln-Gordon a wonderful landscape artist and teacher. I have worked as a mental health nurse for many years and understand the importance of nature and creativity to our mental health. I love living in our tranquil valley in Devon, I have a small flock of Jacob sheep and use their fleece to spin, dye, weave, knit and crochet. I grow a lot of my own dye stuffs and am never more happy than boiling up flowers heads and dying my own wool, well maybe when I have finished a project having created it from scratch. We decided to share our little bit of heaven by doing some Glamping, we have three old caravans we have restored so people can come and stay and top up on some peace and calm.
