Campaign for Wool: The Jumper Collection

Campaign for Wool: The Coolest Jumpers

The Campaign for Wool, of which His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is the patron, is pleased to announce the 2012 WOOL SCHOOL initiative, which sees fashion, textiles and design students across the country competing to design wool sweaters to be sold in top UK retail stores.

\r\n

The project has seen students introduced to a retail partner and given the opportunity to design a wool rich jumper for their company. One student per retailer was chosen and their jumper design developed, produced and will be available in stores to coincide with UK Wool Week: 15th-21st October 2012.

Marks & Spencer - Natalie Mason

\r\n

Originally from Bradford, Natalie is a textile Design graduate of the University of Leeds, specialising in knitwear design. Her design plays into the eccentric heritage trend that was key on the AW12 catwalks; the stripes are in-keeping with a traditional jumper silouette but the open stitch detail on the sleeves gives it a modern and contemporary twist.
