Carole S' Profile

About

Fiber Art in its many forms is one of the most exciting creations of my life. Last year I did an extraordinary amount of research and work on wool (there are SO many different kinds of sheep's wool, let alone other kinds); different aspects of professional felting, making pre-felts and using pieces for mosaic inlays, Cobweb felting, Needle felting, professional ways to felt seamless garments and creating with the different kinds of wool. All of the designs that you see in my shop are my own unless otherwise stated.

Felting is a green, renewable resource as the wool is shaved from the sheep, llama, alpaca etc. and is grown back again as long as it is done humanely. I really love animals and have rescued many cats, so it is important to me that the animals I get my wool from are treated with love and kindness. The small companies I get my wool from are very loving with their animals…

I have been knitting since I was 13 years old. My grandmother taught me how in the British method. I took a class to learn Fair Isle knitting much later and that is one of my favourite ways to show colour in knitting. I've been making my knitted items with my own designs for some time now. I am also learning new techniques as they are coming along at a very quick rate, so that I can incorporate them into my designs.

About me: I'm an animal activist and have saved many feral and semi-feral cats. I volunteered at a cat shelter locally for a year or so. I love the ocean and have a Mother Earth Spirituality. I'm an Herbalist and a Reiki practitioner on my husband, myself and the cats. I used to volunteer at the Battered Women's Shelter, was a Legal Secretary for 10 years and more recently a Professional Makeup Artist for Film and TV for 10 years.

I have had another shop on Etsy for over five years now where I express my love of vintage/antique in recycled and new design clothing, vintage articles and accessories at www.amberdark.etsy.com, which I am now incorporating into this shop and closing Amberdark down. Thank you :)
