The Wool Lab is created twice a year by The Woolmark Company to inspire and inform the textile industry, fashion professionals and retailers about the vast potential of Merino wool.
The first stage of this campaign is the Wool Lab: Preview which is released three months before the main The Wool Lab. It contains fabrics from the archives that reveal the season’s macro themes. The aim is to stimulate creativity and give inspiration to spinners and weavers, providing new examples of wool’s usability and innovations.
For the T H E # 1 0 I S S U E Autumn Winter 2017/18 a new section entitled 'Laboratorio' was created. After working closely with the Wool Lab team for many years they asked me if I could contribute my handwoven work.
For this unique opportunity I created several yards of sample cloth. This cloth combines simple expanded twills in three of my own colorways. This blanket cloth was then cut into many tiny square samples that was included in the publication alongside style images of my studio process.
