London-Wul is a fibre farm in New Brunswick Canada where animals are neither destroyed nor sold without exception. Also a national award winning shop and studio, London-Wul is home to textile artist Heidi Wulfraat.

Five of us worked the shop today. Well, eight if you count Osira, Finn and Angus.
We had such fantastic people visiting, some by coach tour and some on their own steam.
At the end of the day we sat, exhausted yet revelling in the energy that had come back to us through the enthusiasm of others. Everyone excitedly chatted about their own unique encounters.

Once in a while I need to be reminded to relax and take it all in rather than running at full tilt. Today I took it all in. Thanks for the reminder Odette.
... I took this picture of Finn who was taking a deep breath along with us as we recapped.
He's resting in front of our Museum panels which depict the tradition of hand spinning and textile production (how fitting).
Here he lays, after a long day, in front of Mrs. Penny and her Flax breaker (Clara Dennis collection, courtesy of the NS Archives).
