Finding pegs

After loads of phone calls ( Brecon exchange went down!) I found Peter at Brooke & Senior, Cleckheaton. I was trying to find out the cost of wooden skewers used by Welsh farms to close wool sheets (sacks of shorn wool). He asked how many I wanted, 1600, and why. After explaining my story to him he told me that they sold teh skewers by weigh, either 34 or 35 to the pound, lb (depends of type of wood they come from). Brooke & Senior only deal in imperial weights having been set up to make the skewers over 50 years ago.

The skewers are £1.50 per lb.
