In the view of the assessor, English Tilly exemplifies the values of the Environmental Quality Mark scheme. Carol makes charming handcrafted felt pieces using rare breed Whitefaced Woodland wool from the Peak District National Park. She is committed to offering the farmer a fair price for the fleece, supporting the farming economy in her small way. She takes great care to minimise even the small impact her business has on the environment. She imagines and delivers wonderful, therapeutic projects and courses which are accessible to harder to reach people and communities. And she uses the Peak District landscape, as well as rare and precious species as the inspiration for her work.
