folkowl's Shop Announcement

Welcome to FolkOwl!



I use 18-18.5 micron fibers for clothing, and 20-30 micron fibers for other items. I also use silk fibers from my dear friend Betti at http://www.etsy.com/shop/RealfaerySupplies?ref=pr_shop_more

My wool fibers are sourced ethically from a supplier who stocks wool from non-mulsed sheep, including ethically sourced merino fibers from Cape wool. I also use a mix of local English wool fibers. I use only suppliers who care about how they source their supplies. We are an animal friendly home with cats and our beloved rabbit running free in our gardens! I buy my wool from other artisan businesses and hand card my wool fibers.

I dye my fibers with acid dyes which I mix myself, in order to create the shades I need for each felt piece. (The only acidic thing in these dyes is the white vinegar I mix with the dye compounds). I also hand dye fabrics with fiber reactive dyes. All my fibers are washed with eco washing products. I make my own oak wood buttons using fallen wood from the beloved oak trees I have known all of my life!

I produce my creations using a variety of techniques. Above all I enjoy mixed media. I don't like rules, but then again who does!

Where possible I like to use up-cycled and natural materials in my creations.
If you have any questions please message me! Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop!

Love Angela
