Morocco travels (with wool!)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Tuesday, October 14, 2014
A week away on holiday would not be complete for me without a little sighting of some local wool...and a break to Morocco of all places was where I found myself a couple of weeks ago!

Browsing through the Medina, and squirrelled away down a small lane, I saw some bags of very familiar fibre - pure Moroccan sheep wool I was told! All about to be transported to the main city ready to be bid on!


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.
