Forget Free Chicken…

This is my kind of job perk!!!

PB050143

Black merino knit so fine it feels like cotton, (back) and alpaca knit (foreground)

PB050136

A bag of the softest, finest merino (rescued from a rubbish bin!) and 50:50 alpaca/wool

Yesterday I had a tour around the fibre part of AgResearch. I know which section I’ll be looking in for my next job when my current contract runs out. They have everything- a scouring plant, carding and gilling machines, spinning machines, knitting and weaving, dying. From time to time the testing as giveaways of fabric and carpet samples. Great perks huh?!
