artisane yarn producers?

Almost gone... Off to the Pyrenees!  Ahh mountains - space, big skies, brooding, bare, misty, cold - a place where the ancestors live.  This peak is less than 2000m so should be able to manage this - slowly...

Wonder if I might find an artisanal yarn producer, or 'wool fleece processor' or even better a felt maker. If you know of anyone in the Haute Garonne or Ariege districts please drop me a line.

Hoping to visit caves too.

And found a link to a textile museum.

Last year we stayed in Snowdonia and hiked up a couple of mountains, found a woolen mill still powered by water, as well as a slow magician - Helen Melvin who introduced me to the idea of slow dying, and talked about this Australian artist India Flint - well I've raved about her work here.
