Wool Lovers Rejoice - A New Journal

From Standing Room Only, 1:33 pm on 21 October 2018

A new digital journal has just been launched celebrating all things wool - its history and contribution to the New Zealand economy, the move back to crafts like knitting and weaving after they went out of fashion, and the future for the wonder fibre.

The Wool Lover brings together articles offering different perspectives on wool - from people's memories of learning how to knit and snuggling under woollen blankets, through to research into new ways to use wool, including as a source of protein.

Vivienne Stone and Kirsty Cameron have travelled the country in search of wool related stories and writers.
