Yuli describes the historic link between the woollen and the funeral industries and how it has triggered a complete change in her own artistic direction. To strengthen and maintain the wool industry the Government passed a law in 1666 which decreed that the dead must be buried in wool. As a committed environmentalist and through a series of linked projects, Yuli explains the benefits of re-thinking the ecology of wool and funerals in this thought-provoking, beautifully illustrated essay. Her work is imbued with a sense of the place, Dartmoor, where she has lived and worked for several decades.
