Breamfields Garment

By Hattie Kerrs, Aug 15 2017 03:06PM

I've almost finished working on this garment now for my exhibition in 4 and a half weeks. It's knitted in moss stitch from the fleeces of the Hebriddean sheep which live up at Breamfield overlooking Wirksworth. It's a sleeveless shawl collared waistcoat, the buttons will be made from the horns from the same sheep. I'm really excited about this particular garment as you can see the sheep from the middle of Wirksworth, so it feels extra local and especially authentic.
