the @herdy_uk brand (in lovely lime green) is a design favourite, clean lines and hinting at a cheeky smile. I'm awed by all the wonderful posts teaching me about different breeds so this is my tongue in cheek entry in the series 😋

WOVEMBER DAY 8: WOOL IN THE WILD
.
This is definitely wool in the wild; sitting on a North Ronaldsay beach, knitting with North Ronaldsay wool, while the famous seaweed eating North Ronaldsay sheep walk by. A beautiful image captured by @islap1k1

Day trip to North Ronaldsay. VIP treatment being the only passenger on the plane. #highlands #orkney #northronaldsay #vip #officefortheday
The #wovember2018 day 4 prompt is 'sheep' so here's a cheeky North Ronaldsay ewe from @lauristonfarm 😂🐑🐏
.
Alongside designing knitwear I work part time with CoCoCare, a day service for adults with learning disabilities. We often spend time at Lauriston, looking after the sheep, processing wool in their craft room, and helping out with jobs around the farm, and we all love spending time there.
.
The bear is wearing a jumper (yes, knitted by me) with the @cococarecolchester logo on the front. We were taking part in a recent @nspcc_official challenge to show a bear intern all the exciting things we do and he went out on a sheep safari to check on the health of the sheep in the fields and ensure they had enough water. 🐻🐑

Spent the morning at Lauriston Farm in Goldhanger with some of my fellow Weledas, hearing about the amazing work they do. So much to learn. Came home with a beautiful selection of vegetables.

"And after lunch, Jack and I went on a sheep safari round the fields, making sure they had enough water and feeding them sheepy treats. They are rare breed North Ronaldsay sheep, so not much bigger than me! I loved my day at @lauristonfarm with CoCoCare. Thanks guys." 😁🐑🐏

Another visitor from the north on North Ronaldsay last weekend. Lapland Buntings are normally shy and flighty birds but this one was anything but #laplandbunting #birds #birding #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #nature #wildlife #scottishbirds #arcticvisitor #autumnmigration #autumnwatch #northronaldsay #orkney #scotland
The great thing about these vector images is that you can play with the scale of the layers... #northronaldsay #lastweek #twinprop #digitalart #vectorart
Snow Buntings are delightful little birds with bags of character.

After a week of gales and rain, a spot of respite. A clear view of Fair Isle today.

North Ronaldsay sheep 🐑 are a unique breed - they live on the beach and eat sea weed. I’m using this fabulous wool for my final year project...

This morning it was 7degrees but due to the 45mph north westerly it felt more like 4. So of course we went to the beach. Well it is my birthday after all. Now for some more whisky 🥃. #scotland #orkneyislands #orkney #north #northronaldsay #750milesNorth #50
This turned out rather more tourist tea towel than I had intended but... this is North Ronaldsay the most northerly island of Orkney and the six seater plane we flew in on yesterday. #orkney #scotland #northronaldsay #loganair #digitalart #vectorart #sketch
Inspired by our flight in a little 6 seater over the Orkney Islands to #northronaldsay #verracott #viewsofscotland #orkneyislands
Today I met seaweed-eating sheep and just spotted the seal hanging out in the background 🐑

Amazing light today in North Ronaldsay. 
The waves are just immense at the north end of the island😊. Sat for ages just watching them crashing in.

Tuath (north)
.
Tuath evokes the rugged nature of the sea. Sea squalls, crashing waves and heaving winds perpetuate the landscape of the North Atlantic. Green, black and purple mountains jut from the water towards the sky and carry on their backs the hardy little sheep with the short tails and colourful coats.
.
Spun for the #northatlanticnativesheepandwoolconference from 10 North Atlantic Short Tail wools, this characterful yarn has a little bit of all the best characteristics- strong, soft, and pulsing with natural colours, this is truly a #NorthAtlantic yarn. Spun from #Hebridean, #Soay & #Boreray (breeds from the #OuterHebrides), plus #Shetland, #NorthRonaldsay & #ManxLoaghton from the UK, we also blended in #Gotland, #Icelandic, #Faroese and #Villsau to create this deliciously oceanic double knitting yarn that is truly a one-off creation!
Available now on our website (link in profile) & in the Wool Centre

Fog, driving winds and rain have forced our pilot to turn around and head back to Kirkwall. Such is life in the Scottish Isles. And damn it all, I left my knitting in Orkney ☹️ #loganair #northronaldsay #orkney

Finished the shiny mixed rolags, all wound off into a skein ready for washing. 
I love how it looks, and first impression is that it's softer to touch than both the previous two skeins, even though it clearly has plenty of twist in it! 
I'm very keen to see how it comes up with some dye, as I read somewhere the North Ronaldsay dyes well, but I think the silk probably won't...? And no idea about angora or yak! 
Last photo is a comparison with the 100% North Ronaldsay skein. 
Not sure if I should split these two samples and dye half each, or if that would be too small a sample and I should spin up another of each to keep as the natural colour?

The sea sitting on the shore of North Ronaldsay - it’s a “wee” bit rougher now as a storm blows in. Hoping having changed our return flight time will allow our return to Orkney 😬😬 #loganair #northronaldsay

More experiments with the North Ronaldsay wool from @handcrafted_gifts

Spun some straight from the roving and then I've made up a few little rolags blended with white silk/yak (from Handcrafted Gifts), a little of the Sea Sheep Adventure from @ixchelbunny (also featuring North Ronaldsay) and a scattering of throwster silk. 
I love how bright and lustrous these are now.

Planning to dye some with natural dyes at the upcoming EGW&CG workshop as another layer of experimenting.

North Ronaldsay Lighthouse. Built by Alan Stevenson and lit in 1854 it still has the same lenses and gears in use. It was automated in 1998 and these days the lights are run by electricity instead of whale oil.

Bit of an experiment - North Ronaldsay wool, alpaca and some dyed merino for a splash of colour. 
Might play with the colours to see if I can get a 'Cliffs of Hoy' look happening? 🤔
Tried to spin it loosely to keep the fluffy warmness, & apparently it helps reduce prickliness from the double coated North Ronaldsay wool. 
Of course now I have to test that with a much tighter spun sample... 😃

Moving house makes you look at all your stuff again and reassess it. Today's handbag survived the cull. I made it around 14 years ago from a mix of North Ronaldsay and Noro. Silk Garden yarns. It's onto its third handle but still going strong.  #feltedknitting #feltedknits #handmade #handknit #rarebreed #northronaldsay
Fresh off the knitting needles! For my friend Aaron, who initially gave me this beautiful yarn after his travels in Scotland! It's been raining a lot here, but I think maybe I can feel the fall starting to creep in 🙃🍂
