Blaze Farm Spinning adventure...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, March 20, 2015

This Wednesday, I had the chance to head over to Blaze Farm, near Macclesfield, to pick up some hand spun yarns, for my British Breed research, which we're spun by the hugely talented Diane, from The Murmuring Wheel. Not only did I get a bag full of beautiful yarn, but I also got to try some of Blaze Farm's ice cream - the chocolate orange was AMAZING!

I'm really excited to begin sampling with these to follow!


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.
