Celebration of Wool at Woolon

WoolOn 2015 had the most incredible creations to date.  From an insanely tall pointy hat and a sea of cascading pom poms to meticulously crafted pieces in every colour imaginable.  With 18 new designers from throughout NZ and the return of  talented long time participants, the competition was fierce and hot!

Anna and Mary both had entries, Anna’s InfiKnit Cape is an extension of her final collection for her Massey Fashion degree, loving seeing the inspiration…
The True Colours Pink and Black outfit will be published as a pattern – watch out for next year.

Congratulations to Mary for receiving a ‘Highly Commended’ award for her entry into the WoolOn Creative Fashion Event last weekend!  Here is a lovely shot of her garment ‘Coat of Many Colours’ in the Judge Rock HANDCRAFTED section.
The coat is crocheted using her French Macarons technique with our favourite Strand Superfine Yarn of course!
We have the garment on display in the shop so pop in and have a look when you can.
