Winter Woolies!

As the temperature drops I seem to be more and more aware of the lovely wooly textile designers out there! Today I'm looking at the various designer-makers who love to knit, stitch and create beautiful homewares.

The first is Catherine Tough, whose Jaquard knits use fine lambswool yarn, which have been washed and felted to produce all sorts of gorgeous home accessories, socks, scarves and much more. See her full collection at Catherine Tough

 I could not cover wooly textiles without mentioning the fabulous Donna Wilson! Since making weird and wonderful knitted creatures for her degree show, Donna has really made a name for herself, branching out in to lambswool blankets, cushions, rugs and lots of other fabulous accessories. Her work is now stocked in Liberty, John Lewis, Heals, Paperchase and many more independent stores. See her work at Donna Wilson

Here are a few more of my favourite woolies-
