Cozy Mitts by Lorraine

Lorraine Bennett

To me, upcycled wool is the canvas someone else started and moved on. Forgotten and abandoned, waiting for me to take it on its next journey.  Wool is ever-changing with each process added to it. The dyes bring on a whole new element, it blends and bleeds into the fibres just like life, with no straight lines.  And the blending of different wools gives them texture and compliments each other. What emotional response can they evoke, and how they can help someone heal a broken heart. Warmth, beauty, conflict, anger, indulgence.  It all comes together in a pair of mitts.
