We were very reliant upon our own time and the help of others in the production of this film. People have been incredibly helpful throughout and we would like to thank all those in wool, fashion, textiles and crafts in general for their generosity. In particular Linton Tweeds for time and resources, Pearl Legay-Clarke for her design and manufacture, Sophies Wild Woollens for her teams design and manufacture and Chanel for on-line resources.
A special mention goes to the historian Denis Perriam for his work and help on Woollen mills of Cumbria and also June Hall for a general chat and her coproduced leaflet Woollen Ways. We are also grateful to Cumbria County Council for use of their libraries and archives. The local media are an invaluable source of information and in particular The Westmorland Gazette and The Cumberland News, along with general background information from Cumbria Life. A celebration of wool and trade takes place in Kendal, the Kendal Wool Gathering. And of course there is Woolfest attracting thousands of visitors. The museum in Dentdale will tell you about the famous knitters of Dent.
