All's Wool (that ends wool) Farm & Studio, Vermont, United States
After many successful years as a clothing and knitwear designer in New York City, working for several different major womenswear manufacturers, I "escaped" from the hectic city life, moved to Vermont and established a small farm.
I keep a flock of sheep (currently about 40) that I have selectively bred to produce a soft, lustrous wool that is perfectly suited for making my one-of-a-kind and limited edition jackets and other outerwear. I have more recently expanded my work to include making hand felted rugs for floor and wall as well as sculptural felted objects for the home.
I feel a tremendous amount of joy and satisfaction knowing that the wool I am working with was grown by sheep that I held in my hands as tiny and incredibly charming newborn lambs. I hope that feeling is reflected in my work.
