This was a bit of an experiment. This technique I developed by a jaquard stitch knitted in wool on a domestic machine; using the wrong side of the knit, I felt it, and the thread floats all matt together. The result was this heavily textured fabric, yet light in weight, and soft. This piece was part of the W03 collection that Rod McNicol photographed; see earlier post: "A Portrait".
