Three ladies where weaving here next to an exhibit explaining all the steps leading from sheep to wool. You can buy blankets and cushion covers here as well.

I Like watching the weavers and how they used some of the historic patterns in a modern manner. It only takes a few minutes to visit and some of my friends purchased a blanket. Caveat: You could not use a charge card.
