Beautiful five page feature article in
Country Living Magazine
What a wonderful way to start 2019 - a five page feature in the February issue of Country Living Magazine all about Loopy Ewes, my fantastic flock of rare breed sheep and how I work in my Cotswold studio to produce sustainable homewares from their wool. The beautiful photographs taken by the very talented Alun Callendar captures the story from ‘flock to shop’ perfectly. From colourful photos of my beautiful yarns, my special rare breed Portland and Castlemilk Moorit sheep and a small insight into my work process. Feeling very grateful for the lovely emails and orders I’ve received from the readers. It’s been great to hear how the Loopy Ewes story has either interested, inspired or resonated with people.
Loopy Ewes featured on BBC2s
Back to the Land with Kate Humble
Sitting down and watching myself on BBC2's Back to the Land with Kate Humble was humbling. I was beyond amazed and proud to be amongst a group of fantastic rural businesses described as passionate, head strong, pioneering, trail blazers. I had a wonderful, supportive response - we watched the website stats explode to over 600 visitors whilst my feature was airing. I owe a big thank you to Katie Humble for including Loopy Ewes, and to the talented production team at 7 Wonder for capturing what I'm all about so well. If you missed the episode it is now available to watch on BBC iplayer:

5 British ethical knitwear designers you need this winter
As part of Wool Week, Pebble Magazine included Loopy Ewes in a fantastic article on British ethical knitwear designers. https://pebblemag.com/magazine/living/5-british-ethical-knitwear-designers-you-need-this-winter
"Loopy Ewes is the real deal. A shepherdess, designer and maker she has her own flock of rare breed sheep in the Cotswolds, sends the fleeces to Cornwall to be turned into wool and creates modern textiles for homewares and blankets. This is sustainable closed loop making at its finest. We’re in love with her bright geometric knitted cushions and hot water bottle covers that are created on a hand powered knitting machine in her studio.

Described Loopy Ewes as "you really don't get more artisanal than this" in a Christmas Gift Guide that included my grey and cream chunky scarf. The review went on to say "this beautiful chunky grey and cream knitted scarf is a thoughtful present to keep a loved one warm this winter".
