There is yet another wonderful event happening at Somerset House this week and its called Wool House for The Campaign for Wool.

There aren’t many places in central London where you are greeted by a friendly flock of British sheep!

It was a very relaxing moment in my day when I popped out of the office at lunch to visit these girls.

The exhibition itself is full of gorgeous tributes to wool – rugs, fashion, interiors and of course……yarn!! Wheeee!

My lovely colleague enjoying the slick iPad slideshow. She graciously agreed to being dragged out of the office to “come and look at wool.” “OK!”.

Lovely combination of colours. I can feel the pull of colourwork getting stronger.

If you are in London, get ye to Somerset House and check it out.

There are also lots of free events.

And if you like the sheep here is a much better pic of the ladies than I managed!
