Come and meet the menagerie of exotic animals at Thickthorne Llamas!

Janette Buckingham is a spinner and weaver, specialising in exotic fibres from her herd of Llamas and flock of Gotland Pelt Sheep. She welcomes visitors to view the herd and to share her knowledge of the fibre-crafting process which transforms raw fleece to quality knitting yarn. The Gallery sells fibre, knitting yarn and wool, processed from the llamas' and sheep's fleeces, as well as handcrafted garments, and other items relating to the animals and their fibre/wool.

Spinning and weaving tuition is available. Prior booking advised.
