The Campaign for Wool is a multi-national, cross-industry coalition working together to raise the profile of wool as the natural sustainable fibre for fashion and interiors. It is funded by the British Wool Marketing Board, International Wool Textile Organisation, Australian Wool Innovation, Council of New Zealand Wool Interests Inc., Viking Wool of Norway, the National Sheep Association and important sheep producing nations of the world.
All working together! – I love their ad!
If you’re going on a PicKnit, don’t forget to wear your hat.
I’ve just finished this, it’s knitted from Drops Wool and Alpaca with a strand of Hand Weaving Wool Worsted, modeled by Marvin.
And this is some charity shop wool I dyed with a sachet of Lemon/Lime Koolaid. (I wasn’t sure it was 100% wool but the colour has come up well, so it’s wool)!
I shall take this and my crochet hook to the park and have a stab at that apple coaster pattern in Simply Crochet.
Are you “celebrating all things woolly”?
