    I agree with Barbara, it was absolutely wonderful to follow Wool Week through your pictures. It felt like we could almost reach out and touch all that fleece. 2 questions…what book is the gentleman looking, at with the different sheep on the cover and what are the names of the two spinning wheels shown in your picture, by themselves?

  6. Thanks for all your responses, we’re glad to know that you enjoyed the photos. It was a great week!
    The gentleman who is looking at the book is Ella’s dad, aka Smirk. It is actually a brochure I made for the North Atlantic Native Sheep and Wool Conference which took place in Shetland right after wool week.
    We’re not experts on spinning wheels so unfortunately can’t tell you what types they are, but if you get in touch with the Shetland Guild of Spinners, Knitters, Weavers and Dyers they might know.
