WiRE Member Katie Allen from Loopy Ewes in Gloucestershire is a shepherdess and designer maker specialising in handmade artisan textiles for the home, using the wool from my flock of rare breed British sheep (follow the flock!).
Katie recently put an entry into the Bradford Textiles Society’s 2017 Design Competition which received a commendation. I placed my design in the Knit section, into the category for designs that enhance the versatility of British wool. Says Katie,
“It was very rewarding to receive recognition for my work and the beautiful wool produced by my fantastic flock of rare breed sheep.”
