Here is a lyrical tribute to those sheep counties in Ireland that keep the old tradition alive, celebrating the wool they produce and the people who turn it into sweaters and shawls, caps and mittens. Mary Azarian's woodcuts are as strong as a Derryveagh blanket. The heavy, black outlines of her pictures step stately reels across the page.
