At the moment I am trying to sort out funding to keep the woollen line going, in effect writing a plan for the next 6 years. As at any one moment I cannot dream what issue might arise this is not easy.
However I have talked about working with horses as a means of transporting more wool up onto the mountain and using felt made in a dry process called needle felting.
So for 2011 I would like to organise a day/ some days when we carry felts up and peg down two more lines either side of the existing line as well as installing a load of wool ‘sausages’.
Prior to this I will need to find a way to make loads more nets, get them stuffed and then brought to the start location for installation. Also I have to find the right kind of string/ wool/yarn to make the nets from as jute string may not be the best material given the possibility that it may be treated with nasty chemicals as a preservative…….
If anyone has ideas please let me know.
