The North Circular
The North Circular utilizes the talents of grandmothers and high fashion models to create directional fashion pieces. The inspired idea…
Izzy Lane’s flock of Wensleydale and Shetland sheep comprise mainly of animals that would have been sent to slaughter for being male, missing a pregnancy, being lame, being too small, being too old or having imperfections such as a black spot in a white fleece, they never the less pay equal and better prices to save them, and are living out happy lives in their Sheep Sanctuary. Izzy Lane hopes to demonstrate an economic model whereby sheep can exist, be valued and have a place in our world without becoming meat.
Working with the last of 51 worsted spinners and one of the last dyers in the Bradford area. Izzy Lane’s cloth is woven at an ancient mill in Selkirk using Victorian machinery that has been operating for over a hundred years.
