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.

Hope Jacare hand-dyed wool

We hand-prepare fleece direct from British farmers by skirting and scouring the wonderful variety of fleeces available. Some we sell as natural fleece, but we also love to hand-dye with felt-makers in mind. This can then be bought as separated locks, dyed fleece or carded into our felt-making batts.

Hope Jacare hand-dyed silk

I love to dye silk fibres and fabrics, both new and vintage. We normally carry a range of hand-dyed and natural silk top, lap, hankies, caps, brick, noils, filature, de-gummed cocoons, mulberry cocoons, eri cocoons, threads, yarns and various weights and textures of fabrics. These are all great for adding texture to felt-making, spinning and embroidery.

Hope Jacare Carded batts

I love creating carded batts for felt makers and try to keep the Studio in West Kilbride also stocked with batt bits. Great for adding interesting texture to your creations.

Current work that I am exploring.

I am thrilled to have been awarded a Creative Scotland grant to further explore the work i started for the "Elements" exhibition at the Barony, Craft Town Scotland this year.

I sat last night opening your parcel and even though it was things I bought it was still like opening a mystery box. Each item is truly beautiful.
