Back in the Spring edition of Permaculture Magazine, I had an article published entitled “A Bedtime Story” on how we got to make our own duvet from organic sheep’s wool on a farm in the Sarthe region of France. In the latest edition of the magazine, I’ve had another article published, entitled “Far From Woolly Thinking” which describes how the first article lead directly to Val Grainger, a Somerset smallholder, finding a permaculture solution to her problem of what to do with wool that costs more to shear off a sheep than she can sell it for. Click on the links to download the articles in pdf format and here for Val’s own blog.

Enjoyed your article, in fact both your articles as I hadn't read the original. Dag! Now there's a word that brings back memories of my childhood roaming the Welsh mountainsides watching the sheep's arses bounding away from me; except on those occasions when I would meet a belligerent ram, who would then have the pleasure of watching my arse doing the bounding - sans dag I hasn't to add.
