    Handmade woollies - made using my hands alone!

    I started playing with wool when I was tiny, sewing patterns onto floppy bits of hessian. I graduated through knitting, tapestry, and eventually on to arm-weaving and crochet. The idea of snoods came via an artist friend (who has a great eye for anything creative), and although it the art of arm weaving took a while to master, I loved being free of tools. All I needed was wool, and me, and I could be making! Making snoods (sometimes called infinity scarves) is perfect for the arm-weaving technique, as it results in a very loose weave to trap the air, and so the warmth.

    Later, I learned to crochet, and began developing a style of finger crochet that I could do without a hook. Next came the rainbow blankets, then hats and scarves too. These items are better suited to the tighter weave of crochet.

    I'm currently working on a rainbow jumper (see picture), as well as fingerless gloves. These will be ready for sale at a later date.

    (All products are made from super high-quality wool: 60% merino and 40% alpaca – it's beautifully soft, warm, and lightweight – or an incredibly soft fleecy yarn for folk who don't like wool (these are 100% polyester). All products are made to order. I can also make things using your own wool, or any other yarn of your choice, as long as it's chunky.)

    Although I have specialised in wool, I'm interested in all forms of art, and I blog about it here: http://www.wildbrookwoollies.co.uk.
