Felting

Traditional feltmaking is an ancient non-spun, non-woven method of transforming sheepswool into fabric. Felted garments have been discovered in gravesites dating back 4000 years. Imagine, people living 4000 years ago made clothing, rugs, even housing, in much the same way as felters do today.

Magic happens when wool fibres meet water, soap and the energy of the felter. Tiny scales along each fibre open up and tangle together, pulling tightly and shrinking, forming a durable and warm fabric.

My goal is always to let the beauty of the material speak for itself, and to use the natural properties to obtain different colours and textures. My background as a sheep and cashmere goat breeder is the foundation of my love affair with natural fibres. Working with such earthy materials is a constant reminder to me of our connection with the natural world.
