I love experimenting with different British Breed yarns, and after doing some top secret knitting swatches for a new project (EXCITING!!), using some lovely Whitefaced Woodland yarn, I had a bit of time (unusual!) to have a little play around! I had been using the 4ply yarn as quite a delicate almost lacey stitch maker, so I went the complete opposite way, and used my knitting noddy to create a really chunky french knitted 'yarn'! 

Using 20mm needles here's the progress so far...


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.
