Under the microscope...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, March 20, 2015

I have spent the past few weeks getting my science head on for my research!

I have had access to a great prototype microscope that connects straight to your iPhone (genius!), and had lots of fun testing all the fibres I have collected underneath the lens! (Many thanks to my lovely lovely science friend!)

The photographs have come out great, and the difference between breeds makes for really interesting viewing!


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.
