Woolly wonders make tuffets at farm session.

A FARMER has used wool from her sheep in a creative session at a top venue.

Caroline Fishpool led an activity day at Stirley Community Farm which involved making tuffets from wool from her own sheep.

A trainee at the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Caroline keeps sheep and wanted to use the wool in other ways.

Sunday's session at the Berry Brow farm saw people use raw wool and take home their own tuffets.

Caroline said: "I've kept sheep for several years and always had a keen interest in sustainability, so using the resources supplied by my sheep made sense.

"Tuffet making is lots of fun and a nice introduction to using wool.

"As a trainee at the farm I've picked up lots of new skills and it's great to be able to share these skills with those that visit us here."

Visitors at Sunday's activity day could also sow their own vegetables, which will be picked later this year.
