Organic Food Festival Bristol

Organic Food Festival

Julia demonstrates knitting with 'Guiness World Record' knitting needles.

Julia knitted with 50 strands of dyed Cornish Organic Wool at the Soil Association's Organic Festival (6th-7th September). 

Saturday was interrupted by frequent heavy downpours so the knitted piece wasn't as big as we'd hoped.  However, Sunday was dry and Julia (with help from some children and Ben from the Soil Association) managed to knit the whole of the balls of wool, making a giant "rug" nearly 2m long.

At the same time Sarah and Hazel from Spinning Weal in Clevedon demonstrated carding and spinning using an organic fleece.  Volunteers (including Sarah's husband, Dave) knitted the handspun wool into squares which, ultimately, will be sewn together into a baby's blanket.  Children, in particular, always find spinning fascinating and were eager to help pedal the wheels and give Sarah and Hazel a break!
