Follow the Flocks

Super-tough RFID tags, created to help owners identify their livestock, have been attached to a collection of garments which have been knitted from wool supplied by a flock of Welsh sheep.

Christien Meindertsma (remember her Checked Baggage?) used the wool of one sheep to make a sweater, socks, a scarf and a pair of gloves.


Each garment of the These Flocks project, comes with the identification number of the sheep that donated the wool.

Tough enough to withstand the worst weather, the labels can be used underground or underwater and are unaffected by grease, grime or solvents.

Thanks Konomi!
