Do you need any wool?

FleeceRachel Hayball at Hogshill Mead in Beaminster is offering bags of wool.

Sadly wool is currently worth next to nothing and many of us cant even find buyers for our wool, so I have decided to see if anyone else wants to buy some!
The fleeces are unwashed and a couple may have sheep marker on but it will wash out.
Fleeces can be used for spinning, can be used instead of mulch on the garden, and once washed can also be used as insulation. It is the perfect environmentally friendly product.”

If you are interested please drop her a message on Facebook. She is asking for a donation for each fleece, ideally at least a fiver.
