I am really excited about these finely woven woollen fabrics. They are made from British wool and are woven in Yorkshire. Several quilting magazines have featured woollen fabrics. The colours are so subtle and names like heather, moorland, sea scape and sandy shore spring to mind. Some new pinks and greens and bright colours have now arrived. I have been using them to make, hearts and flowers – on a ring or as a brooch as well as lap throws. As the throws have caused a lot of interest we have put together some packs for people to create their own throws.
I made these flowers to show case the lovely wools. Each flower consists of three circles of wool – 4, 3 and 2 inches. I then used the zigzag/satin stitch on my sewing machine to edge the flowers which made them curl! The flowers make lovely brooches – see the Kits page.
