About

Hi my name is Lou, I live in Cornwall and I have been felting for just over six years. The process itself is both addictive and fascinating. Wool is shaped and rubbed whilst wetting and soaping until the required result is obtained. It takes quite a long time so patience is needed.

I am now selling felt jewellery, brooches, hats, wall hangings, the ever popular wraps and clothing of my own design..
I make long armed fingerless gloves, headbands, neck warmers (all handknitted) in spectacular colours, I use nuno felting,wet felting and needle felting (ouch), which is a dry felting process using special needles to jab at the fibres so locking them together. Watch out for other crafts in my shop, I like to dabble....
It has taken some time for me to actually put stuff…

It has taken some time for me to actually put stuff on Etsy....now I have a backlog of stuff to list but am getting there.
Each item is a one off and completely unique. Start your Christmas shopping early and miss out on that rushing and scrabbling just before Christmas. Mother's Day, Birthday's ans other special occasions catered for. Commission work is undertaken.
Any questions then just drop me an email...I am happy to answer any questions you may have. My workshop is now up and we await electricity for lighting and heating, Workshops for felting, dyeing and more will begin in the Spring.. Lou.
