Week three of the #Wovember2016 instagram photo competition…

As we mentioned in this post Wovember is once again hosting an annual photo contest on instagram. All you have to do to enter is use the hashtag #Wovember2016 on any images which show the ways in which you are appreciating and celebrating sheep and wool this Wovember. You can see some of the diverse range of entries here! Every week, lifelong wool lover and long-term Wovember supporter Joanne Spittler will share her favourites as a kind of woolly round up of some of the awesome stuff taking place around the world this Wovember.

A lot of us think of sheep, spinning and knitting or crochet when we hear the word wool. I used that thought as a stepping stone and decided to pick three pictures of felted wool this week:

Fiona drew this delicate felted picture:

Thanks to Joanne for taking the time to go through the photos submitted so far to the Wovember 2016 photo competition and for making such a thoughtful selection; it’s beautiful to see these images of felted woollen textiles side by side!
