The Little Lancashire SmallholdingEngland
About The Little Lancashire Smallholding
My name is Rainy Williamson and I live and work on my little Lancashire smallholding with my husband, sons, cats, chickens, ducks, sheep and the odd turkey!
I design and make jewellery and textile items for the home using mainly aluminium and wool. I also teach craft workshops here on the smallholding.
I made the flat cap beret for this challenge by first dying the wool by hand, then crocheting the piece. The next stage is always a bit of trial and error which is the fulling or felting to shrink and combine the fibres to get a stiffer denser material for the cap. Whilst still wet, the cap is shaped and allowed to dry.
