Woolly Adventures

These pictures were taken in a little touristy shop in New Zealand. The shop also had possum hats, jackets, rugs, and possum and merino wool jumpers and yarn. πŸ™‚


I saw some hand spun wool here, and I just couldn’t resist taking some photos. πŸ™‚

It looked so cute! πŸ˜€

    Oh how I wish I could touch possum yarn!! Was it really soft? Merino is like a cloud-only a wee bit dryer ;)–is the possum like a fluffy Angora (from bunny-fur?) do you think? NICE pictures! I see you are developing your mama’s eye for color and composition-and Pap’s humor too-considering the Mac shot from the conference! πŸ˜€ (I still like you even if you are Mac people BTW!)

  3. Dear Mrs Dandelionmom,

    It was VERY soft! I’ve never actually seen anything made out of bunny fur other than a bunny, but I’m sure it’s good! πŸ˜€

    Thanks for your kind words about my pictures. πŸ™‚

    I’m glad you liked that picture of the Mac! πŸ˜‰

    Meggie Eggie,

    Thanks for your comment! πŸ˜€

    I love your photo of the handspun wool. I have lovely memories of my Grannie spinning her own wool on her spinning wheel – then she used to knit me beautiful jumpers, and even socks! Sometimes she used to let me have a go on her spinning wheel – but I was never as clever as her in getting the yarn to be nice and smooth. Mine always had big “blobs” in it!

  6. I’d love to have a go on a spinning wheel myself, one day…

    And I’m sure the blobs add character! πŸ˜€
