A fantastic gathering of people, who all spoke very well, about the blossoming in textiles in Ireland at the moment. It was great to hear so much spoken about the home market, the Irish interest, and not just the tourist trade. Well worth a listen.

If we use all the BAA BAA sheep for all theses activities there will be none left in Ireland. Sheep wool is already used in pillows and duvets

Normally I delete any comments that are just advertisments for businesses, but I'm going to leave yours in Building-Insulation! Because you gave me a good laugh...
Personally, I've never seen a sheep pillow, but, that's not to say they aren't out there...
