Wool Fusion is the latest celebration of wool spearheaded by HRH The Prince of Wales' Campaign for Wool. As part of Wool Week 2017 the exhibition features an impressive collection of fabrics, photography, furniture and fashion all showcasing the beauty and versatility of this natural material. The campaign has inspired everyone from designers to manufacturers, high street brands to bespoke retailers all of which are represented in the exhibition.
Brintons collaborated with textile designer Angie Parker to create an axminster stair carpet design named Fryktlos. The pairing of the collaboration between Angie's organic, handwoven style with our custom QuickWeave process allowed the design to be swiftly reproduced in a large quantity using the Brintons signature 80% wool/20% nylon blend.

Whilst not everyone is lucky enough to commission their own flooring design we wanted to show what is possible within wool and fitted on the main stairwell this carpet knits together pieces installed both upstairs and downstairs, ensuring visitors transition from wool installation to wool installation is seamless. 'Fryktlos' embodies the fusion between the independent design community and established bodies like us who are both invested in the wool industry - we hope you like it!
