Alpaca yarn on the go...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Wednesday, November 2, 2011

We have hand delivered (not personally me but the amazing alpaca owners!) all our lovely fleeces in the most beautiful, cream, fawn, camel and rust colours - so now comes the long wait whilst it is magically transformed (ok not quite by magic - with a LOT of hard work from Paul!!) into beautiful yarn, we have set the designs in motion and I am itching to get started on making some beautiful garments for our new womenswear label - launching in Summer 2012 - we already have 2 confirmed shows to showcase them - so let the hard work begin!!



Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
