The Amazing Benefits of Wool & More Classes

The Amazing Benefits of Wool

A collaboration between Terri Laura and Julie Dennison

I have been having the best time in the past few days unveiling a project I have been working on with my friend and local illustrator Julie Dennison.

The project is all about wool and my top 12 reasons for loving it. I asked Julie to help me out to illustrate these (quite literally) and help spread the word. So far we have shared the first 5 images on social media and on my website. The best part is... there are 7 more to come!

11 - biodegradable
10 - flame retardant
3 - clipping
12 - moulds to shape
1 - supporting crofters

You can keep a look out for these on my Facebook and Instagram pages, even if you don't have an account for these. Along with each illustration I am including some facts and figures about each topic, and featuring a photograph as well, some from me and some from friends who are also working in the wool industry.

Otherwise I will be updating you in Junes post with the entire collection of illustrations.

What We've Been Up To

Nothing has changed lockdown wise in Shetland since my last post, we're all still staying safe at home. Something that has been lovely is having some extra time to bake.

It's rhubarb season here in Shetland and we've been enjoying everything rhubarb. I have some cubes infusing some gin right now in fact!

One of my favourite rhubarb deserts is a rhubarb crumble. My friend Laurie posted a recipe for a crumble and the next day we made one! It was delicious. Grant prepared it while I made the dinner and I feel as if I've missed out! So I am planning to make another to send to family.
