British breeds needed...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Tuesday, June 30, 2015

My research is coming along well, I am really enjoying having the time to connect with people, manufacturers and other designers, whilst researching all about British sheep breeds and their wool! (Did you know that there are over 60 pure breeds kept in the UK today?! - thats a lot of different fibre characteristics to look at and learn about!)
I am still on the look out for the above yarns/fleece - if you have any contacts or know where I can get hold of any I would love you to get in contact with me!


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.
