Nanyuki Spinners and Weavers: Handmade Woolly Stuff
The Nanyuki Spinners and Weavers are a women's self-help initiative. They will give you a tour of their workshops where you can see how their products are made, starting from carding, spinning and colouring the wool to the making of carpets, wallhangings and other things. All of which you can buy of course at the end of the tour in their shop.

Wood Workshop: Wood Carvings
If you take the turn in Nanyuki for the Sweetwaters Game Reserve you will soon pass the entrance to a little workshop on the left hand side where you can watch how wood carvings are made. It's really amazing to see a giraffe slowly emerge from a block of wood. The wood that is used here is specially grown behind the shop for this purpose, so it's environmentally friendly.
