wool wool wool

Possibly the shortest meeting of the year, was our visit last night to the Wool Board warehouse at Liskeard, one of only two in the southwest now. Phil the manager took us on a whistlestop tour, showing the wool-in, grading areas, bag packer and core sample machine. Afterwards we asked him a plethora of questions on everything to do with wool, and his life in the shed. 

Unexcitingly, when asked what the most interesting thing he ever found in a fleece bundle was, it was just some birds eggs, and a dead lamb. Oh well. We finished by risking a trip into the White Horse in Liskeard. No club next week as it's Launceston Show.
