Hand Felted Wearable Art Clothing

Artisan Wool & Silk Textiles

Based In The Heart Of Avalon,Surrounded By The Mystical Wetlands Of Somerset,

I Create One-Of-A-Kind & Made To Order, Hand~Crafted Felt 

Boleros, Bags, Finger-less Gloves,Snoods, Hoods & Luxury Hair-Falls.

I Offer A Bespoke Service For Adults & Kids Clothing.

Using Ancient Wet Felting & Modern Nuno Techniques , I Merge The Ancestral, Practical & Ecological Ethos With Dynamic Contemporary Design.

The Alchemy Of Felting The Sheared Wool Into A Beautiful Eco Garment Embodies Flux.

For Everyone Who Appreciates Hand Crafted Individual Style.

Delve Into My Woolly World...


My Wool Top Has Already Been Cleaned, Carded & Dyed Using Commercial Acid Dyes,Which Give The Wool Such A Rich,Vibrant Colourfast Colour.

My Local British Shetland Fleece is Naturally Washed & Undyed. 

I Use 8 momme Silk Chiffon & 8 momme Habotai For Nuno Felt.

A Multitude Of Fibres Go Into Building The Surface Design,Including, Pre-Felts, Wool Locks,

Rose Plant, Tencel, Soy & Silk Fibres, Ribbons, Hand-Spun Yarns & Angelina Sparkle Fibres...Lush x



 

I Make My Hand~Crafted Felt Wearable Art Using Merino Wool (Known For Its Softness) 

Mixed with British Shetland & B.f.l fleece, (For Thickness).

I Blend The Fibres & Colours Using my Drum Carder which gives me Beautiful 'Batts' Of  Colour Blended Wool.

Once The Lay-Out & Design Stages Are Finished, Then The Felting Process Of Wetting Down & Rolling The Piece, 

So The Fibres Mesh Together Into A Textile, Begins...This Is The Really Physical Part !

The Amazing Patterns & Textural Finishes That  Evolve Are Truly Remarkable & Unique.

Felt Is The Most Versatile & Exciting Medium For Free Flowing 3D Creative Design.
