Gosh how disillusioning: I'd have thought somewhere like Bloem would be bristling with them! Does no-one do this stuff any more??

Anyway I came across an online community called http://www.in2crafts.co.za - may be worth checking on there.

If you really don't come right, Arthur Bales in Jhb are wonderful, and they may even know of outlets in the Free State.

Handcraft seems to be a dying art......... I was in JHB this weekend and visited Arthur Bales - it was FAB! :) I desperately need something in Bloem as I screwed up and forgot to get something in JHB- Blonde moment. Will check out the link - Thanks so much!

Thanks Gavin - have now called almost all of them - they are in fact manufactures of woven garments would you believe? AARGH!

There is a small place that sells wool just down from New York New York restaurant if I remember right. Maybe try giving the Hobbit hotel a ring as it is close by. They are always very helpful and may think of something.
