Well 2017 has been and gone, and here at Hawkshaw Sheep HQ, what a year it has been, mostly ups a few downs and as usual controlled by the weather!
Jan - The 2016 clip of the Hawkshaw Sheep fleeces arrived back in the from of yarn, the start of my new business.
Sent in an application for Woolfest which if accepted is where I will be launching my Hawkshaw Sheep business.
I took my weaving yarn over to Andrew Elliott the weavers in selkirk to have a length of Tweed cloth produced.
Feb - This month was taken up with twisting the hanks of yarn into skeins then making and attaching the labels.
Heard that my application for Woolfest had been accepted.
Got my Tweed cloth back from the weaver, it far exceeded my expectations, it is gorgeous.
