Welcome to Wovember! And support Movember ...

Wovember, the month-long celebration of pure wool (and no substitutes or mis-descriptions!) is not as high profile as the glorious world-wide fund-raising extravaganza Movember, but we do want to try and do our bit - ladies (most of them!) are not as good at growing moustaches as the other sort of people, but more of them do knit and crochet ...

We were delighted to find that there are already 46 patterns for knitted or crocheted moustaches on Ravelry and have discovered a new book specifically on knitting moustaches, Knit Your Own Moustache, by Vicky Eames, with 20 knit and crochet patterns - available on Amazon of course! 

So even if you cannot grow your own (now there's a thought - could we use maiden-hair fern instead, or asparagus plant or carrot fronds?), you can make one.  We would like to see pictures of these creations, modelled by their makers, so that we can post them on our Facebook page and raise some funds for Movember ...

Please join in!  We hope to get The Natural Fibre Company staff into a group photo ... but we are still working on it!

We are also doing quite a few other Woolly Things this month ...
