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.
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.
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.
