They don't seem to sell to the general public. However, it did lead me to a farm that breeds Bowmonts. In the next village. Only they've presold all their fleece. I'm going over next week to look at s ...

yarn is unlikely to decide to headbutt you over a gate or drown itself in a drain

I've no idea. Probably both, as I have two kinds. It's amazingly useful except it isn't strong enough to walk on, and I have not yet dared try cutting it or screwing holes through it.

I want another chicken house. It's going inside another building, so it need not be waterproof or have a floor or base. I was thinking of something modular and plastic that could be taken apart and ho ...
