Chinti managed to make the final day of Wool House, a beautifully curated exhibition at Somerset House about the myriad wonderful uses of wool in design. From felted sculptures and textural wall hangings to elegant wool suits by fashion designers such as Alexander McQueen and Giles, not to mention a charming photographic tribute to our ovine friends, the exhibition combined fantasy with practicality and provenance, and further strengthened our love of all things wool.
