Description

Meet the wool industry in France, with eleven portraits of French "workers" in the sector, and ten patrens of knitting sweaters designed by Alice Hammer after meeting breeders, shearers, spinning mills, dyers, haberdashery... A response to questions from today's knitters who want to understand where the wool yarns they buy comes from and who care about the environmental and social impact of their occupations.

Alice Hammer designed her book as a committed and fascinating report around wool "made in France", from breeding to knitting. Based on the stories of the actors she went to meet, she candidly reveals the hopes, weaknesses and difficulties of the sector, explains the challenges of the French wool industry, and opens up prospects for the future.< br>
Following her creativity, she gives us 10 magnificent patterns, each linked to a personality in the knitting industry.

This original work offers, among other things, a detailed description of the Spinning mill Fonty, and presents two models made with Fonty yarns : a women's cardigan in SUPER TWEED, and a men's sweater in TARTAN 3. Alice Hammer also created many individual knitting patterns sheets with the Fonty yarns, available here.

Please note that this book is written in french - no english translation.
