Are there any keen felt makers and spinners who would like some raw fleece, or anybody considering insulating an outbuilding with cheap wool? Wool is also a great weed (and slug!) barrier and helps maintain soil moisture in the garden/allotment.
Our flock needs to be shorn every year for welfare reasons, the global market for wool has been shut since February and remains closed at time of writing. February to May is normally the busiest selling period of the year for the British Wool Marketing Board – as a result there is circa 9 million kgs of last years wool still unsold.
We will soon have over 1300kg of wool needing a home – if you or anyone you know would like some wool please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with an approx. weight you would like and we will let you know when you can come and collect, with your own bags. We would just ask for a donation.
