“Woolgather” is a speculative research project for Textile Design Research Concepts (2013) for BA of Textile Design. Hand knitting and crochet are used as a therapeutic tool to make a hood and cape. Thick, warm fibres are used to envelope the wearer to comfort and shield them from the everyday world. The daily noise of society will be reduced through built-in headphones and the textile releases relaxing essential oils into the personal space of the wearer.
