Woolly Necklace 1

 

Wool is a wonderful, natural and sustainable material, underused in the UK, although it has multiple uses. Sadly, this year, due to the pandemic crisis, a fleece is worth less than the cost of shearing.

To highlight this issue, I have created three pieces in felt using British wool. The Jacob, Shetland, Black Welsh and Manx Loaghtan breeds illustrate the subtle range of natural colours.

The feltmaking process is slow and meditative, perfectly suited to the current situation. Wool absorbs moisture, resists dirt, is compostable, light and warm. These three sculptural pieces are soft and tactile and comforting to touch.
