Wool and Silk Felting

How did it started

Very long ago one shepherd used to travel many miles with his sheep and his feet tend to blister sometimes. Once he put some sheep wool inside his shoe to make his feet more comfortable. By the time he reached his destination, he’s discovered that wool fibre during long rubbing by his sweaty feet became strong and soft piece of felt. Thanks to the old shepherd’s discovery we found feting .

Over the years felting turned into fine art, as many talented people driven by the power of their imagination turned simple wool fibre into incredible and unique masterpiece.

Felting nowadays became a wearable art

Felting is like painting and sculpting with wool. It allows to create unique and amazing things.

Felted items are all unique and will become a statement piece in your wardrobe and are one of a kind accessories and wearable art.

Each piece is hand made with utmost care using the finest materials – soft merino wool, alpaca, curly wensleydale wool, and beautiful silk fabrics. Nuno felting often incorporates several layers of loose fibres combined to build up colour, texture, and/or design elements in the finished fabric.

The fibres can completely cover the background fabric, or they may be used as a decorative design that allows the backing fabric to show. Nuno felting often incorporates several layers of loose fibres combined to build up colour, texture, and/or design elements in the finished fabric.
