No wonder we struggle to keep up with demand for our Black Welsh Mountain Beerenberg Pullovers

No wonder we struggle to keep up with demand for our Black Welsh Mountain Beerenberg Pullovers
First of all you have to find them! The clever little darlings seem to like hiding as clumps of heather like the one in the middle of the picture. This lovely shaggy beast would make a couple of our Beerenberg Black Welsh Mountain Oiled Wool Pullovers but even when you find them you have to catch them and they are mighty shy. Mind you, I can't blame them, it gets pretty cold on the Black Mountains and I wouldn't fancy spending the night up there after some barber has attacked me with a pair of...

Flying 10 by Johnson and Loftus - Stop Press! THEY WON!!!
Our friends Tim and Dan have just built this lovely Flying 10 which they will be exhibiting at the Dinghy Show this weekend.

Our minor part in this beautiful boat was supplying the rigging. We used these handy swaged eyes so that 3 mm Dyneema D Pro could be lashed to the...
