Hello ladies, thank you for having me in the team. My name is Ann and I'm from the Rhondda Valley, Wales. I opened about a week ago but haven't been able to get a fraction of my items in yet-it's more complicated than I thought.
Mostly I knit and felt but if I use wet felt(as in my egg cups) I do make my own felt from merino wool tops- have any of you made your own?
Bamboo felt sounds really interesting, I've never heard of it before.

i normally use the bog-standard felt, but i have made my own felt, by accident.
i had a gorgeous lambswool jumper, my dad put it in the dryer ! eeek! but it made lovely felt, i used it to make this:

It's a really good stress reliever, lots of vigourous rolling ! It's really rewarding and there's loads of info on net ( I've got kits going into the shop soon) like most crafts though it's so addictive. My family joke that if it doesn't move I'll felt it...soap, stones I've tried them all.
I do love knitting and felting. Your heart is beautiful SewShaw ;)
