- View the Giant Sheep installation on Level 3 created by Sam Gazal Installations that incorporates a Merino sheep’s head covered in 20 kilograms of wool top, a body made of the latest wool fashion from Country Road, SABA, Farage, J. Bale, Rodd & Gunn and R.M.Williams, and pasture made of wool felting, knitting and other creative techniques.
- Marvel at the handwoven fibre art by sisters Lauren and Kassandra Hernandez of Crossing Threads. On show are four artworks incorprating the duo’s recognisable ‘interknot’ technique that is distinctively highly textural, organic, intricate, and heavily inspired by the beauty found in Mother Nature and Australian landscape.
An initiative that arose from the global Campaign for Wool, Wool Week champions the eco-credentials of the fibre. Wool is a natural, biodegradable and renewable fibre, making it the perfect choice for those seeking clothing that has a minimal impact on the environment.
The fibre has unique natural properties that enable the world’s leading designers to fashion garments that are breathable, comfortable and stylish, with superb handle and drape.
Wool is grown on sheep that are raised on sustainable grassland terrain. From the high rainfall areas of the eastern seaboard to the drier pastoral areas of the west, sheep have become an integral part of the iconic Australian landscape. So choose wool, our Aussie farmers will thank you.
