Designer Donna Wilson’s woolly world is based in London, but its origins can be traced back to a hen house in Aberdeenshire, where Donna grew up on her parents’ farm. There, the artist let her imagination run wild, crafting sculptures out of sticks and twigs. Donna took this artistic motivation to London to study at the Royal College of Art, where she knit her very first creatures. Years and hundreds of thousands of yarn spools later, Donna Wilson toys delight children of all ages with their quirky whimsy of pattern and color. Wherever possible, Wilson works with British craftsman and manufacturers in an effort to keep these rich traditions alive. In a country renown for its woolen production, she is delighted to say all of the fabrics for her woolen products are knit in Scotland from Scottish lambswool and assembled in the UK (The new cotton corduroy Wild Things Collection is handcrafted in a small factory in Thailand.)
