The Wool Underground

Conversation over Mother's Day weekend

me: When I was on holiday, my mom and I went to a spinners' drop-in group, and we spent time at a retreat too with all these spinners, and we toured a custom wool mill where you send in fleece from your own sheep and get the same wool back...

friend: I had no idea places like that existed!

me: I know! It's like a whole Wool Underground.

The equivalent of an LYS (local yarn store) crawl for spinners:
