 On Sunday I went to an exhibition about wool at Somerset House with Natalie. As well as the expected demonstrations of things like Fair Isle and weaving, they had interiors and artworks made out of wool.



rainbow


This was Natalie's favourite thing in the show.



tweed sample




Samples of tweed.



I have some lovely electric blue tweed wool fabric, but I'm scared to cut it, because it's a vintage remnant, and you have to match the pattern up so carefully.




zigzag




Worsted fabric.



moodboard 1




I love textile moodboards.



moodboard 2




weaving




This lady was demonstrating weaving.



loom




The loom. Hi-tech royal mail rubber bands.



loom 2




The warp threads on the loom.



bobbins




Bobbins.




hats




Sheep hats. Ideal for those times you run off into the woods with Dioysus.



snowflake




Nice fabric.



tailoring




The process of tailoring a jacket.



room




 One of the rooms decorated entirely with woolen items.



granny squares




Granny squares.



brown rug




I also liked this carpet.




arch




The entrance.

These next things are all by Donna Wilson, a designer whose work I've eyed up for quite a long time, but obviously can't afford.



cat cushion





cot





playhouse




Instant playhouse blanket.



pouffe

I'm pretty sure I've seen Donna Wilson's cushions for sale at John Lewis! They were really expensive, over £60. :(
