We are not technically having 'Sheep of the Week' this week, because we wanted to show you a farmer instead. The said man is Giles Maddever, from Hall Barton Farm and Wayland Farm and he delivers fleece to Cornish Organic Wool. Here he is, being rather handsome in a field with his Lynn / Mule Cross sheep which are growing 4 ply and DK. 

Cornish Organic Wool are a friendly bunch and you can hear about their good work on this Radio 4 program.

Cornish Organic Wool is one of the few yarns certified organic by the Soil Association and is now available from PYF in these glorious colours.

I always prefer farmer of the week and I would suggest you explain the same with a few examples to make it
easy to understand for people who are new to this discussion.
