Editor’s Perspective: Time to introduce myself

Welcome to the wool issue.

I can’t wait for you all to read these stories, as I share a little bit of my own story too. While you might know me as Metropol’s fashion writer, my job as Deputy Editor is no less exciting. Putting together my first solo issue while Lynda is taking a well-earned break has been a dream, and this is one I am hugely proud of.

I had a wonderful time speaking to Kimberley Crossman and Emma Timmis, who you will read about soon. Both are avid givers, of their time, skill, and strength. It is people like these who bring light when the world feels quite dark.

Both Kim and Emma shared insight into their respective journeys with mental health, an ever-important topic to touch on. More often than we think, life has a funny way of distorting the way someone feels.

So to everyone who reads this, be kind to yourself and those around you. Make time and space for discussion and togetherness.

The knowledge and passion shown across these pages have made me realise that supporting our wool industry is even more than a gorgeous New Zealand-made knit. It means choosing local and sustainable as much as you can, in as many ways as you can.

In this issue, find a wealth of reading on the importance of wool to our country, alongside the businesses championing its way forward. Supporting local is paramount, and you can’t get much more local than this.
