STORAGE SOLUTIONS

...something that I don't particularly excel at is being organized. I do, however enjoy rearranging the studio; stuffing, storing and stashing materials in all manner. We've been discussing "stash issues" in our Newsletter and with that thought, here's a little look at some London-Wul studio storage solutions.


Metal baskets for wool are wonderful both in the dye shed and in the studio. I collect them from old freezer chests.

Baskets, boxes and zipped bags fill storage shelving throughout the studio.


There's no reason why organizing can't be fun!


... and of course more baskets, baskets, baskets.

Metal racks are hung over a double sink to dry fleece.


One must never underestimate the little things in life. Small pockets full of treasures can bring such joy!



The cutting and ironing table. Could it EVER be big enough? Up top are bales of washed wool. When there's no space left - move up:)

My Schacht spinning wheel with the trimmings. All cozy and unified so that I don't have to scramble when looking for a new bobbin or a different whorl.
Hall trees everywhere for those bits and pieces that you just can't hide away.

Rolling shelves are fantastic for moving around the studio as needed.

Angus likes to lay low in the back room. Sleeping among the stash.

Raw fleece stays outside in the dye shed. Along with pots, pans and drying racks.
