Wool Museum…

read about the scarf festival here

“At the National Wool Museum, you will discover why fleece from Australia’s sheep was at the heart of our economy for nearly 200 years.

Since the arrival of sheep with the First Fleet in 1788, the wool industry has dominated our economy, our agriculture and our reputation as a quality wool-growing nation throughout the world.

Geelong is a city synonymous with wool and the wool industry โ€“ sheep farming began here in 1835 and the first of many woollen mills opened here in 1868. For many years the city was known as the ‘wool centre of the world’.

Two hundred years later, in 1988, the National Wool Museum was established as Australiaโ€™s only comprehensive museum of wool.”

Happy New Year!.. I’ve made quite a few resolutions to myself for this year and one of them is to do a blog post everyday.

These are the merino and tussah silk and merino silky rose fibre single bobbins that I plyed today. I never ended up plying them on Christmas Eve so today I wanted to get this yarn done so I can now start a new spin for 2018.
