Brr, grab your woollens as it’s getting nippy here in London! Last Saturday saw London’s wool lovers aggregate at the base of London bridge, swathed in their woolly wares and armed with a bicycle to take to the streets for the Wool Ride; a fun, active excursion around London seeing the sights and supporting the Wool industry in the process.
My best Blogging pals (Carrie, Dunya, Kristabel and Olivia) and I chose our fave pieces from Barbour’s new collection (totes the best dressed group) and rode off into the cool morning air. I’ve finished the course knowing one thing. Cycling is bloody brilliant and London is bloody gorgeous and the two go together like wool on a spindle. Here’s just some of what we saw!
Now is the perfect time to make the most of wool, with its warming properties, heritage and ethical advantages. Lets take a moment to thank those sheep for providing us with colourful yarns to knit into jumpers or weave into warming tweeds to line our jackets. Clever sheep…
