Rowan Country

We went to stay with friends on the edge of the Peaks this past weekend; the sign for Holmfirth wasn't the only thing that let me know I was in Rowan country.


I like to hope that the wool from these sheep is destined for hand knitting one day.

I very much doubt it, most is made in other countries these days, which is a shame.

If you get ball with a big red splodge in it you'll know for sure!

I grew up in that neck of the woods and I'm sure part of my love for Rowan yarns is the tie to Yorkshire. All of the beauty with none of the cold wetness :)

Hi Sarah!
I love the area. I have been there just once a few years ago. It is so beautiful. There is a little rustic yarn shop in the town centre.
I totally agree. I hope their fleece will be a nice hand knitting yarn :D

Perfect timing posting sheep with spray paint on them. The capture I just returned from wanted to be able to ID the elk better from afar for behavioral studies...and so I had to actually spray paint their number on their side. Totally offensive and morally objectionable to me (so much that I refused to take any pictures of them in that state)...yet as the technician reminded me, they do it to sheep all the time. Still. When they shed in a month or so it will be gone but for some reason, it's okay to me that sheep have paint...but not elk! :)

Beautiful country by the way...thanks for sharing!
