Laura Ray's Profile

About

I love creating with natural materials, reshaping old items into something fresh and new. Fair Isle animals are hand-stitched from original designs, sewn and embroidered with loving detail by one artist using only a needle and thread. Each one is unique, even when cut from the same pattern and wool, a slight surprise even to me. My original intent was to make whimsical playmates for children, but I have come to enjoy creating for the many adults who delight in woodland characters as well. I also make soft wool and cashmere accessories for children and adults. I am passionate about beautiful wool and inspired by the material itself to make creative decisions about what each piece will be in its new life.
