Over the course of a year, Esther Rutter - who grew up on a sheep farm in Suffolk, and learned to spin, weave and knit as a child - travels the length of the British Isles, to tell the story of wool's long history here. From the mill workers of the Border countries, to the Highland communities cleared for sheep farming, she finds tradition and innovation intermingling in today's knitwear industries. This Golden Fleece is at once a meditation on the craft and history of knitting, and a fascinating exploration of wool's influence on our landscape, history and culture.
