From small green fields all across Ireland Zwartbles wool collected and transformed into a product that is now going to The London Design Festival a strange but wonderful farm life.

    Hi Suzanna
    I am coming to see you on Friday morning and looking forward to it. Plan to be with you around 10.00 / 10.30. I have mislaid your mobile number. So sorry and wondered if you could send it to me. Also I just wondered if you could send me that lovely photo of your sheep having a look at blankets in basket and one of blankets being woven. I would really like to feature images in my forthcoming newsletter. Thanks so much. Emma (I am of Ireland)
