Synopsis

Wigtown Book Festival presents Esther Rutter: This Golden Fleece

Esther Rutter learnt to spin, weave and knit as a child. For this book, she spent a year with needles in hand unravelling Britain’s history and culture through its wool, a journey that took her from Border mills to Parliament’s Woolsack and the empty landscapes of the Highland Clearances.
