12 Month Garment

By Hattie Kerrs, Jun 5 2017 11:18AM

Finally finishing off this garment, it's been 12 months since I started this one. Incredible how long it takes to create a piece from scratch, from sourcing, cleaning and sorting the fleeces, carding, spinning, scouring, dyeing, and endless rinses. This is before you even get to the knitting. I have a new found understanding of the value of clothing from before the industrialisation of yarn processing, and will probably darn this until the end of my days.
