I have such amazing friends and family - who else would brave a freezing cold Yorkshire Mill (with amazingly generous owners who let us take over their whole Saturday - Paul!!), let me put tonnes of makeup and hairspray on them, dress in my clothes (thank goodness they were wooly else they would have probably got frost bite!) given up their entire Saturday with a very early start to photograph, film and model for me?! A huge huge huge thank you to them - the pictures look incredible and the films are all ready to be edited on monday whoo!

So after a drive through Yorkshire we arrived at the mill and were kindly given free reign to shoot anywhere and even got to take over their office and turned it into a girly changing room (sorry!), after Nik and Rachel did their photography business and set up lights etc it was over to the gorgeous models to pose their hearts out - starting off in the one warm room of the mill - the drying room! We then moved through the stages of yarn production from the carding machine to the spinning machine!

Heres a very small selection of pictures - not edited yet but I love them just the way they are!



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.
