Lou Mills-Watts' Profile

About

Hi my name is Lou, I live in Cornwall and I have been felting for just over eight 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 required. Some of the fabrics and wool is dyed by me using natural dyes ( plants) or acid dyes.
The finished article varies dramatically from the synthetic felt which, I have to admit, I am not keen on.
I am now selling accessories, felt hats, wall hangings, the ever popular wraps and clothing of my own design..
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,
From Autumn and Winter warmers to summer evening shawls, have a browse, if you likey…
