Woo hoo, my first article for Seamwork is included in the September issue, which is released today.
The article is a profile of TOFT, a British knitting company who produce alpaca and wool yarns, and knitting and crochet patterns.
TOFT yarns are produced in the UK using British fibres, and the business is based on an alpaca farm in Warwickshire, not too far from where I live. Taking part in #1year1outfit has made me really conscious about trying to use locally produced fibres, so it’s great to have such a fantastic business close to home. I also had the best possible day when I visited the farm to interview owner Kerry for the article. In order to photograph the alpaca I was allowed into the pens for some close-ups, so I spent a blissful afternoon climbing into pens and being surrounded by young, curious alpaca.
A few photos that weren’t included in the Seamwork article are below.
