Upcycling means to use waste and transform it into something new, more pleasing and with a new use. It is the process of adding value to preloved items through design. I gather locally sourced recycled wool knitwear for upcycling. There are so many textiles just shipped abroad or thrown into landfill. I am on a mission to recycle waste wool textiles. This can be from the second hand clothing sector, or from the few remaining UK factories that manufacture wool knitwear in the UK.
All jumpers have a high wool content, and have been chosen for their colour and texture. Working from my home in rural West Northumberland, I give all recycled woollies a wash, then choose colours that go well together. The jumpers are then cut and sewn with an industrial overlocker with seams showing for added texture and interest.
All designs are one offs, one of a kind, unique products. This is certainly a Christmas jumper that you won’t find anyone else wearing!
Head back to Women’s Clothing to see what else I have been making lately. You may be interested in my ponchos or woolly wraps. All items are unique one offs that cannot be replicated, so when they’re gone, they’re gone!
