organic wool project...

...i am very excited to be taking part in a new and wonderful project along with other designer/makers
the project is a collaboration between two organic Welsh companies
 Funding has also been provided by Better Organic business links Wales.

the aims are; (to quote Llynfi Textiles)

*to raise the profile and explore the potential of organic wool
*to establish a broad community of interest that spans wool producers, designers, makers and the general public
*to showcase the potential for organic wool and the quality, innovation and commitment to sustainability of designer/makers in the UK

all sounds really fantastic to me and shows a forward thinking approach to how wool can be promoted.

wool is no longer something that your granny knitted....

with new organic fabrics and yarns...wool now has a funky modern twist
any project that helps promote this has my whole hearted support.

all designer/makers items for the Organic Wool Project will be showcased at WonderWool Wales
 27-28th April 2013

for more information please go to Llynfi Textiles or Ystrad Organics

here are a couple of my mood boards for the project...that's the organic fabric I will be using...gorgeous isn't it?
