British wool has no rival for sturdy warmth, so we have designed this wonderful yarn to form into fantastical shapes on fat needles. Jubilee Cushions (40cm x 40cm) contemporary and functional. Made in EARTH, British Thick Wool... with a 100% wool cushion.
Belinda Harris-Reid and Ruth Morris were commissioned by The Campaign for Wool to design and make 24 cushions with the word ‘Wool’ spelt out in letter-form, in celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee and to be displayed at the Queen’s Jubilee Thames Pageant on Blackfriars Bridge.
The concept and inspiration behind the making of these designs came from Ruth's and Belinda's belief in the need to promote and applaud individuality in a world of mass production. Wool was the beginning of these fantastic ideas, the soft possibilities and the warm suitability.
