"Knitwear design and fabulous fibres were my first love"
I love to work with natural fibres, especially wool and wools blended with other natural fibres such as silk and alpaca. Wool is renewable, sustainable, wear resistant, flame resistant and water repellent .
Recent years have witnessed a strong movement promoting the very real benefits of wool; #Choosewool, The Campaign For Wool, has gathered pace spearheaded by HRH The Prince of Wales bringing wool back into fashion and raising the price of fleece to make this sector more attractive for farmers again.
In my work I use an eclectic mix of fibre weights from laceweight to extreme weights knitted on broomstick needles.
