‘Claire’s ability to harness her mental health experience through Wool Couture is admirable. Her products are a labour of love and her latest book, Robyn Octopus & Friends, is no exception. There’s something so wonderful about spending hours creating something and being able to gift that to someone we love or keep it because we’re beyond proud of making it.
This book is making me want to make my nana proud and pick up my knitting needles once again! I hope it inspires you to do the same.’ – Foreword by Sara Davies, from Dragons’ Den
