Bradford Textile Society Design Competition 2013/14

Encouraged to enter this competition by my University, I designed and hand wove a blanket fabric for the section sponsored by the British Wool Marketing Board. They supply a range of coloured and un-dyed wool yarns; I chose to use a grey and a deep green Shetland, supplemented with my own dye colours. To meet the deadline and catch the post, I omitted to photograph my submission! These images are of my development sampling.
