About

Felting in a hot month of July?

I always loved knitting sweaters in winter, but who buys wool in a very hot summer? In July 2010 I saw some special wool yarn for felting at an unbeatable price & just couldn't resist. I never felted before, but then I crocheted a little cat, felted it & filled it with lavender blossoms from my garden. For lavender at least it was just the right season.
Suddenly there were 2 cats, 3...more & more. Autumn came & a first bag. Winter & some slippers. And then many many necklaces. What to do with all of these?
So then my shop "FILZKATZE" (The Felting Cat) was born.
In 2011 I started natural dyeing from plants.
My Mum Lilo also got infected by the felting virus & started making wonderful bags & bowls that I also sell in my shop.

As I care a lot about human, environment & animal welfare, my new products are made with either natural or plant dyed "Vegetarian Wool" from sheep that live in animal sanctuaries or as "landscape managers" peacefully until their natural death.
Sometimes I also use vegan vegetal silk (Lyocell, Tencel) made from plants & non violent silks like Tussah Silk (wild silk) & Ahimsa Silk (Peace Silk) being obtained without killing the silk worms.
I love all vegan, animal & eco friendly materials.
Working with them makes me feel even happier with my hobby & hopefully many people more.

My cat Reesha (Arabic for "feather") is my inspiration, model & tester.
