“From day one [Wool Couture] has been about designing, creating, making and sharing. I first began knitting and learning to crochet as a child and my interest in working with wool grew from there. Over the years I have used it as way of managing anxiety and depression, as well as a way of channelling my creative energies.”
– Claire Gelder, founder
