I have not written a blog recently - mainly because I have been very busy handing over to the the new owners of the business. 

The photo above is of the sample carder which I renovated in my garage in the year before The Natural Fibre Company took me over.

I have a series of planned blog items in the pipeline though:

What's in a logo? Cornish roots and joining together

In the second thinking piece, I mentioned the story of our logo - probably a less enthralling tale than that of the lovely lady Tamar, but quite important to us and what we are about.

It starts with Sue (of course!), who was born in Cornwall and was a Girl Guide.  Therefore she has a fondness for things Cornish and, as it happens, also for knots.

More thoughts ...

It was nice to hear from people about their responses to my "thought" piece, so I thought a bit more!  But there are a couple of pictures  this time, which I hope convey the words.

This is about our strategic thinking for The Natural Fibre Company and Blacker Yarns but also about British sheep.

We will also be producing a small item on the development of our logos and how they diverged and then converged in graphic terms and why.
