Texel is a small island in the north of the Netherlands is the place I like to be. It is crowded by sheep’s, there are living more sheep’s than people.
Their wool is giving me a lot of possibilities. Spinning, dying, felting, knitting and weaving.
Wool give me the feeling of protection and comfort. The smell of a fleece is unique. Long ago Bob and I wrote a book about spinning wool, Spinnen (Dutch for spinning). It is a technique you never will forget, like riding on a bicycle.
