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.
Recently my Mum Lilo also got infected by the felting virus & started making wonderful bags & bowls.

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" & are not butchered.
Sometimes I also use Tussah Silk (wild silk) & Ahimsa Silk (Peace Silk/non violent silk) being obtained without killing the silk worms.
I love all 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.
