Jane Gunner reviewed: Wool processing workshop

"I did the wool processing course with Lisa. I can highly recommend it. Lisa is one of those rare people who is the full package! She’s great fun, very welcoming, so knowledgeable, patient, and cares deeply about the welfare of all her animals. The view from the Woolly Wagon is breathtaking. I really enjoyed the day and learned so much."

Zoe Travers reviewed: Wool processing workshop

"My husband, daughter and I spent a wonderful few hours with Lisa and Nic at their beautiful farm learning about sheep and more specifically their wool. Lisa taught us how to process the wool and then introduced us to needle felting. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we came away with felting kits and a whole unprocessed fleece courtesy of Springtime. Beautiful wool, from beautiful sheep and a new hobby for me. Thank you Lisa."

Jack Smellie reviewed: Wool processing workshop

"I attended one of Lisa's courses with a friend and cannot recommend the course highly enough. Lisa was friendly, welcoming and enormously knowledgeable AND so so passionate about wool and all its uses. I learnt loads, came away far more confident and am now thoroughly enjoying my own wool journey with my own fleeces. These courses are such value for money and with a maximum of four attendees, you really do get individual attention and tuition! It was fabulous to meet individual sheep and learn how to assess their wool and then transfer that knowledge to the actual processing (carding, felting etc). This is a course that delivers everything it says and more."
