Festival: 2016

Title: The Bespoke Merino

Merino sheep created in collaboration with Huntsman, Savile Row, London, for Wool Week UK 2015. Made in response to The Campaign for Wool, led by patron His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to raise awareness about the beauty and versatility of wool.

With special thanks to the 450 BBC Get Creative participants, including the Wollaton branch of the W.I. for stitching 100 WOOLMARK labels with Merino wool to celebrate the 100-year birthday of The National Federation of Women’s Institutes.
