Sheep and people: who's counting?

There is a book, called Sheep and Man, by Micheal R Ryder, about the influence of sheep on human society - it is very fat and heavy and I will read it one day (as I also hope eventually to read A Brief History of Time!).

Meanwhile, we made a mistake by transposing the sheep and people populations of the UK, in our Blacker Yarns newsletter today!  We said that there are 2.3 sheep for every person in the UK but in actual fact it is the other way around.  We are very sorry and are sure that this will give rise to plenty of helpful corrections!

This is a lovely story about a new business just starting, the why's and the how's and how we have worked with them at The Natural Fibre Company - we will occasionally include these in our blog, although you can also find some ... on all sorts of flocks and herds, all across the country and with all sorts of end products ... in our Case Studies.

Ewe Spinning Me a Yarn is the brainchild of Natural Fibre Company customer Liz Wookey, a lady who is not only passionate about the sheep she breeds, but also about the area where she lives.
