Anglesey is a beautiful place and is rich with inspiration for any creative types. At this time of year when the weather is getting warmer the fields are littered with wool that the sheep are naturally shedding so while on a walk this week it was the perfect opportunity to go foraging!
Coastal walk from Trearddur Bay to Rhoscolyn.
You can see the Snowdonia Mountains in the background.
These fields are the home to hundreds of sheep and you can find their wool all around, stuck to the gorse bushes and littered all around the place in abundance.
With husband and daughter in tow, we all set about collecting the cleanest looking wool we could find. We probably collected around 200g on the walk, which when cleaned and carded made a fantastic amount to work with.
I'm no expert at this process but a quick youtube visit gave me all the instructions I needed to make the wool workable and clean.
