Virginia Wool Books & Biography
Virginia Wool was an English writer, feminist and craft-obsessive. The seventh child in her family, she spent most of her youth searching for the perfect place to house her burgeoning craft collection. She described creating seminal works of modernist fiction as a frivolous pastime – an amusing distraction from her more serious pursuits: like making at 6-ft tall papier mache lighthouse. Her most famous piece of non-fiction, <i>A Loom of One’s Ow</i>n, centres around her search for creative freedom and her very own loom, featuring all her favourite literary-inspired crafts.
