Research work progress...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Tuesday, May 19, 2015

I don't talk much about my research work on this blog (although lots of my work/pleasure time overlaps and I am really lucky that I get to research what I love...wool, knitting and sheep!!

There are a few exciting new ventures coming in the not so distant future and it feels like some of my hard work might finally pay off...I have been getting very excited about some of the breeds of sheep I have been working with, and sampling with them has been a great adventure, heres a little glimpse of the work 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.
