The Woven Briar
The Woven Briar is my weaving workshop based in the rolling hills on the edge of Exmoor. Using blade shorn fleeces from my flock, harvested or foraged plant materials, I create textiles and craft materials that are fully traceable and sustainable. I have a small flock of rare breed sheep which I keep for their beautiful and versatile fleeces, blade shorn to improve the length of fibre and the welfare of the animal. I hand hand wash, spin and weave the wool into beautiful one of a kind pieces right here on the farm, creating 100% natural, biodegradable, sustainable pieces in tune with the seasons. I also have some fleeces sent to the a fibre mill just an hour from our fields, to be made in to sliver and yarn, suitable for felting and spinning.
Coldicott woollen products
Coldicott woollen products from my flock of Shetland sheep, including raw and washed fleece, sliver and roving, skeins and balled yarn.
