‘Goat to Garment’ Screening + Learning Lab

April 24 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm €17.45

We’re collaborating with The Knitwit Stable to bring you a Learning Lab on re-thinking how we work with wool (and drive change in the fashion industry).

Mohair (goat) and merino wool (sheep) has been a controversial textile within sustainable fashion and there is a big gap in knowledge between design and production. This session will share inside learnings on the supply chain of wool, equipping you to make informed decisions within your own business when it comes using mohair, merino or other kinds of wool.

We will kick off the session with a twenty minute documentary, followed by an interactive workshop to understand what it takes to go from goat to garment, as well as how to meet sustainability standards along the way. You’ll also get the opportunity to see and feel samples from each step of the wool supply chain, including fleece, yarn, and finished garments, and actually try out spinning and knitting mohair and merino.

Who this session is for: Anyone working within the textile industry, interested in designing or distributing knitted garments, or students wanting to gain better understanding of processing wool and it’s supply chain.

What you will get out of the session: Deep understanding of how a supply chain is built, how to make better decisions when it come to your own supply chain and how a local business can improve it’s production process.
