Over the winter months last year school children and ladies of a certain age from all over Cumbria, and indeed the world, were eschewing the delights of the x-factor and nintendos for a simpler way of passing the time. They were getting together to make masses of pom pom sheep in a project to celebrate the beauty of wool. And now in a production to rival Antony Gormley's Field for the British Isles, the sheep are herding together at Rheged for one huge installation.
