From sheep to garment
From sheep to yarn
The main material suppliers to the products are Danish Gotlænder wool, and wool from my Spelsau breed sheeps. It takes several tecknical process before the raw wool is transformed into the final weaving yarn
From yarn to textile
Every design starts with a sketching and design process, where I work with form, patterns colors, tactility and of course the yarn.
From textile to Garment
Before the final textile is woven, a lot of decisions has to be taken. Several samples are woven before the final textile. When the textile is finish the next step is to cut, hand sew and finishing the garments and products before it's delivered to the store or directly to "made on order" customers.
