We spent most of our Australian holiday on the coast, but after the first week, we headed inland over the mountains and in to the city of Tamworth. It was a Saturday night when we arrived, and many of the places I would have liked to visit (such as art museums) were closed on Sunday, so instead we took a drive through the countryside to the small settlement of Nundle. One of the main attractions there is the historic woollen mill, where they still make yarn on their old machines, and sell it to handknitters, as well as selling woollen garments from other Australian producers, and, sadly, imported from China.
This photograph of the yarn drying on the racks in the dyeing area is posted for Carmi's latest Thematic Photographic theme, Parallel.
