Giving voice to generations of women, Sophie Ablett and Klein Blue weave together spoken word and large-scale knitting in this performance of She Seeks Out Wool.

Writer-performer Sophie Ablett shares the personal journey of her own family and the discovery of the loose threads, the relatives left behind and how the past can be woven into the present.
