Announcement   Felt, wool and silk are beautiful, tactile, colorful, visual, even sensual mediums to work with and wear. Hand dyed. Hand spun. Hand woven. Hand felted. Stunningly gorgeous scarves, wraps, hats and more, for people who appreciate precious things.

********************************************
Much of my work is nunofelt - incorporating the light airiness of tissue silk, and cotton gauze. I hand dye the fabrics and these patterns are an integral part of the design of my finished pieces.

I also hand spin and weave beautiful accessories too. I source high quality fleeces from small hobby farmers who have names for all their animals and treat them as pets. I dye the fleece then often blend it with other luxurious fibres like silk or angora or mohair. The wool I spin is beautiful with the added lustre of these special fibres.

From time to time I add hand-dyed silks and cottons to my shop. Most of these are dyed using shibori stitching and clamping techniques. They are often laborious techniques but the patterns are fantastic.

If you like the style of something but maybe prefer different colors, CONTACT ME. I am happy to work on custom items.

I post on my blog from time to time with more indepth information about what I do, how I do it and what influences my work, so pop in for a look http://www.beljaysfelt.com

About

What I really loved was colour, texture and pattern

I began my creative life as a painter. I exhibited regularly in group and solo shows for many years. It wasn't until after I moved to Noosa on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia that I discovered the art of handmade felt.

I realised that what I really loved was colour, pattern and texture. Fibre and textiles allow me to play with these elements within a wide range of techniques

I opened my store to share my love of textiles with the world. Each piece is unique and witness to the attention paid to materials and detail.

Over the years my skills have evolved and now I have added spinning and weaving to the shop. I source my fleeces from small hobby farmers who know their animals by name. The fleece is washed, dyed, combed and carded by me and then spun into woolen yarn. I use the wool to weave, sometimes knit or crochet.

I am always happy for people who want to commission a piece, be it a scarf or a larger, special piece.
