The Art of Felting:

The first step to creating these beautiful felt pieces begins with gathering some of the world’s finest sheep’s wool. Making felted wool is an ages-old, time-consuming process of bonding fabric with fibre. This is a physical job where the artisans scrub, rub, roll and rinse the wool again and again with soapy water.

Once the wool is bound into a sheet and the desired thickness is complete, the felt is laid out to dry. From there, the felt wool is cut and reworked into many complex shapes and designs. The many sheets of wool might merge several colours to create patterns and layers. This takes a well-trained, talented artisan and is a true labour of love. Another example of this beautiful craftwork, is our Christmas Nativity Set, an unusual and fun addition to Christmas.
