I have been felting my distinctive woodland felted accessories since 2011 on Etsy, and take pride in the unique designs I create for my magical customers.

I design, dye, felt, photograph and package each creation with my own hands, and this is truly an artisan shop.

My designs are inspired by the woodlands of my childhood, and are deeply rooted in fairytales and magical imagining. I am proud to have created a recognised original brand, featured in Faeriemagazine Winter 2017!

My wool fibers are sourced ethically from a supplier who stocks wool from non-mulsed sheep, including ethically sourced merino fibers from Cape wool. I also use a mix of local Welsh wool fibers. I use only suppliers who care about how they source their supplies.
I also buy my handspun wool from other artisan businesses and hand card my wool fibers. We are an animal friendly home. My studio companion is my dog Eddie!

I dye my fibers with acid dyes which I mix myself, in order to create the shades I need for each felt piece. (The only acidic thing in these dyes is the white vinegar I mix with the dye compounds). I also hand dye fabrics with fiber reactive dyes. All my fibers are washed with eco washing products. I make my own oak wood buttons using fallen wood from the beloved oak trees I have known all of my life.

I produce my creations using a variety of techniques. Where possible I like to use up-cycled and natural materials in my creations.
If you have any questions please message me. Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop!

Love Angela

About folkowl

Sales 2,695
On Etsy since 2011

Inspired by Nature and Fairy Tales

I have always enjoyed making handmade creations. My childhood spent in nature is one of my main inspirations, and the greatest source of my happiness! My twin sister and I spent our days building camps and bridges, from fallen branches and bundles of twigs. We made perfumes from the petals of roses, and sat on blankets waiting for them to take us to enchanted places. It was a magic that has stayed with me through all of the good and bad times in my life since, and informs my creative inspiration to this day. The magical and mystical power of the imagination and childhood are the main source of creativity for my work at Folkowl!
.
I have sold my work at Galleries, festivals and Craft Fairs. Folkowl on Etsy is currently where you can purchase ready to ship and custom made creations.

Thank you for visiting! xo
