About woollysfelting

On Etsy since 2015

From fells to felting.

Once I discovered the art of needle felting it became my passion. I love the way wool can be sculpted into my own creations. I always liked to work with wool such as knitting and crochet but I didn’t like to follow patterns, with needle felting I found the freedom create my own designs.
The method of needle felting is achieved by using a felting needle and repeatedly stabbing the wool which fuses it together.My sculptures are made firstly by building a wire armature and then covered with wool to felt for the finished piece.

Living in Cumbria I am able to walk the fells and get close to the native Herdwick sheep of the Lake district inspiring me to create my own Herdwick sheep sculptures, doorstops and cushions using their wool. I like to use other British wools, Cheviot is a favourite and great for building sculptures, also Romney Marsh for it's strength. I also like to use the Austrian Bergshaf which is practical for 3D building and also soft for a lovely finish.
Other subjects I like to felt include wildlife such hedgehogs, owls, fox, hare.
My husband Richard found he has a talent for needle felting quite by accident. he was helping me by felting backgrounds, also carding wools etc. This progressed over time, now he designs his own cushions. Richard likes the hare especially as a subject, he also has a stag, Herdwick and most recently a highland cow to add to his designs.

Happy felting!
