Wrapping Up the Year in Style



Raspberry Apparel has just released a special line of wraps and wrist warmers produced with the support of Creative Saskatchewan's Creative Industries Production Grant.

Ester Knight, Designer at Raspberry Apparel, describes the wraps and wrist warmers as a special project for her company. "They were developed in collaboration with amazing and talented artist Cindy Obuck," Knight said. "They have been hand-felted and hand-dyed using 100% Merino wool and silk."

Creative Saskatchewan's investment allowed Raspberry Apparel to test new design methods, apply new techniques, and refine a process from design to delivery.

"Wearable felt is not widely available because the number of hours of labour involved simply makes it too expensive and unattainable for the average person to purchase," Knight said. "This project gave us both a deeper understanding of producing wearable felt, how to translate smaller samples into larger pieces, and how to allow the fibre to speak and show it’s beauty."


Now, Raspberry Apparel can apply the techniques they've developed to future projects.

"We have been interested in working towards more unique one of a kind type items we could offer to our customers that were affordable and high quality," Knight said. "The Creative Saskatchewan investment gave us the opportunity to figure out a process that works. We had several boutiques interested in this project, and we can now work with individual boutique owners and create unique offerings for future seasons."
