Wool and the Gang introduce you to the craft of crocheting with raffia, a breakthrough new yarn that is great for a wide range of summery projects. Light and eco-friendly, raffia yarn is made of 100% long wood fibre that adds structure to your projects, making it perfect for hats, bags and accessories. This book includes 10 crochet projects all made using Wool and the Gang's Ra-Ra Raffia yarn in a range of colours. Projects include on-trend raffia items such as bags, hats and baskets, which are then further embellished with embroidery in raffia yarn too. General techniques are covered at the end of the book, with instructions accompanied by clear illustrations.
Designers Aurelie Popper and Jade Harwood met while studying Textile Design at Central Saint Martins in London. After school they gained experience together at Alexander McQueen and Balmain in Paris. After being discovered by former model and yarn lover Elisabeth Sabrier, together they founded Wool and the Gang.
