Long Live The Whipping

Whatever ‘The Whipping’ was, sadly it didn’t live long enough. This wool mill in the South Island of New Zealand has been abandoned since going into receivership with the loss of 30 jobs. Four years after its closure we found thread still wound in its industrial looms which fashioned merino possum, mohair and sheep’s wool into beautiful colours and textures. This is a companion video to Long Live The Darning.
