  • About the range

    Our Woolies collection takes inspiration from the woolwork images of ships stitched from the 18th Century onwards. Stitched by sailors in their downtime between trips out to sea using any pieces of wool or textiles they had lying around, these pieces were never intended to be of any value or considered works of art.


    This range is our interpretation of the traditional woolworks. Through the vibrant colours, and combination of simple long stitches, I hope to be able to continue the wonderful tradition of stitching woolies. Despite their size, these kits are very simple and suprisingly quick to stitch: you will use long stitches in wool on a pre-printed canvas. These kits enable you to create a piece of art to last for generations to come!

  • Framing your woolie

    What are your options

    We have three different framing option for your woolie, ranging from unpainted frames so you can decorate it yourself, through to our bespoke hand painted frames. The woolies are statement pieces to last for generations and our very special frames are a work of art in themselves.


    You can also take these pieces to any good framer and you'll be able to work with them to create something really special and unique to you.
