Fleece was a solo exhibition and performative process by Adelaide textile artist Deborah Prior, drawing on the history of string, yarn and sheep.

Exploring the material makeup and sensory possibilities of yarn, fabric and thread, as well as the socio-political and historical implications of the materials and process employed by the artist, Fleece was informed by a period of research undertaken at the South Australian Museum as part of The Collections Project.
