The design department at Massey University has something to bleat about as one of its wool-based creations goes on show at a major UK exhibition.
The innovative wearable art creation, made from felted wool, is on display at London's Southwark Cathedral for the Campaign for Wool's global Wool Interiors Collection.
The creation - known as 'oneP-wings' - combines layers of wool felt and laser cutting to create a single unstitched garment that can be hung as art, and worn as a coat.
Massey School of Design undergraduate programme leader, Deb Cumming, says the one-piece pattern is a new approach to apparel design production, and it also highlights the diversity of wool.
"There are two layers of 5 millimetre industrial wool felt, and it is a wall panel that is in the shape of a bird. It has a plug within the wall panel that you can peel off the wall and then you take another layer of wool from that shape and then you can put it on as a winter coat.
"And then after wearing it for the day you can place it back up onto the wall, put the plug in and it disappears into the image wall panel again."
