I remember once on a tour of our local croft museum the man was showing us carding and weaving, at one point he cut a length of the spun yarn and handed it round everyone pulled and picked at it in their curiosity till it fell apart. One person pointed out how fragile the strand of yarn was, how easily it was pulled apart and unravelled.

The auld lad guiding us round nodded acknowledgement of what had been said. He then pointed out that when that frail thread was woven together with all the other frail threads it made a fine blanket strong enough that we could toss someone up in the air and safely catch them. That is the wonder of Mudcat individually we may be weak but when we come together to become the Mudcat blanket the strength and warmth we generate spreads like sunshine round the world.

We are here. We want to be a wool blanket.

Thanks again, Megan L. Those words will resonate thru my very soul for the rest of my life.
