I am delighted that I am an official brand supporter for the Campaign for Wool. Click for Campaign for Wool Website.
His Royal Highness (HRH) The Prince of Wales is well known as an environmentalist and has long recognised wool as the first choice fibre for sustainability, durability and quality.
HRH has agreed to be the patron of The Campaign For Wool, an initiative based on his drive for universal sustainability.
I am pleased to support the The Campaign for wool and celebrate the natural qualities of the fibre, I encourage you to do the same.
Many of my college projects during my MA at the Royal College of Art and during my BA at Winchester School of Art were focused on using wool (my favourite fibre if you haven’t guessed already) so when I first heard about The Campaign for Wool – Video for The Campaign for Wool I was keen to be involved. I took part in a Campaign for Wool competition for Rowan in my final year at the RCA and it was due to this competition that I met James Laxton www.laxtons.com who helped me with a project when I left college. Wool plays a very important part in my work. My love of wool and knitting has taken me on some very exciting journeys. It has taken me to far away remote communities in the Himalayas, and places closer to home such as Paris, Orkney and Shetland. Now that I’ve finished my studies I am able to put into practice the things I have learnt and experienced and apply them to my professional practice. I am a very proud supporter of the Campaign and I aim to continue to spread its message wherever my next wooly adventure will take me.
