Felt-making collections and ingredients

Hand dyed ingredients to inspire in your felt-making. We dye specifically with felt-makers in mind . I love to wet and needle-felt, ideally combining both in personal projects. For me interesting textures are what felt making is all about.

Hope Jacare hand-dyed silk

I love to dye silk fibres and fabrics, both new and vintage. These are all great for adding texture to felt-making, spinning, mixed media and embroidery. Please ask if you are looking for something special for a project.

Hand-dyed yarns and threads

Yarns are just a wonderful ingredient in feltmaking and creative textiles. We love combining them in our mixed media textiles pieces. I hand dye silk, wool, plant based fibres and synthetic yarns/threads.

Our very own "Hope Jacare"kits

From years working as a designer for greetings cards I have a huge range of designs that I wished to try as needle-felting kits. Also keen with many of them to add on extra embellishment through stitching and beads.

Hand-dyed fabrics and ribbons

I think the fabrics we use in our pieces can have such an impact. I love to dye new and vintage upcycled fabrics to experiment with in our textiles pieces, hopefully you will find some interesting pieces here.
