Up all night shagging

Wind the wool and cut the wool and knot the wool…

Finishing up an extremely dense coat for a special birthday, the big 3.0! Here’s a silent video of the technique in action…

All the wools used in this coat have been sustainably sourced and/or donated to me secondhand! Love me some socially and environmentally conscious fashion making.

While I have been endlessly knotting-and-repeating, I have also been stuffing around with my camera to break up the monotony of making the shag. This includes a couple of cheeky GIFs of the work, front and back!

Thanks for reading! Just publishing a brief post today because I need to keep working, these jackets will not shag themselves! Pardon the puns, but I have to keep myself amused working alone long into the night…
