  • Needle felting kit contents

    Needle Felting Tool Kit


    Needle felting is growing in popularity for a very good reason; it is an incredibly versatile craft, highly enjoyable and creative.  But it begins with the right tools that are a joy to work with.  Here they are, all in one beautiful, organic Shetland felt bag.

    • Turned wood 3-needle holder tool. Reverse them to store inside the tool.  It’s neat!
    • 7 layer organic felt needling pad.  If you keep the layers separated it will survive heavy use.  Otherwise, turn it into a kneeling pad!
    • 6 needles – 36 gauge
    • Skein of mixed coloured tops – Shetland wool
    • Presented in a Shetland felt bag

  • Neck or lumbar pillows

    Neck or lumbar pillow


    “The lumber pillow… works a treat, particularly if I am sitting working on the laptop a long time. A genius little thing.” (Customer S. Adams 2016) 

    As with all my other products these elegant pillows are made from 100% organic wool, locally sourced and from a blend of rare and primitive breed sheep.  The dyes are natural so please expect variability within the range.

    So lie back and rest with this under your neck, head or lumbar.  Take it with you when you’re travelling and it’ll make you just that little bit more comfortable.  This is a loose roll of felt, within a roll of felt, so soft to rest on.

    Measurements: 45cms length X 34cm circumference (approx)

  • Wool felt Christmas trees 2015

    Felt Christmas Tree decoration


    Inspired by spending 5 days on my own in a little cabin in a Norwegian forest, these Christmas trees are individually made and measure approx. 20cms X 10cms (that’s 8″ X 4″).  They are all different!

    Hang it on a wall or even on your Christmas tree.  It makes a lovely, light little gift to send a friend (or two!).  And it will last year after year.  They come mounted on a “Real Dartmoor Souvenir” product card, with some extra information about wool.

    If you buy 4, I will put an extra one in free of charge.

  • Feet Felt kit

    Feet Felt Kit – walking in wool to make felt!


    Fun Felt Feet Felt Fun! Watch the video…

    Make these beautiful moulds of your feet in the best of British wool: Blue-faced Exmoor.  A tried and tested experience that transforms wool into felt as you walk.An ancient legend tells of how the art of making felt began; a pilgrim used wool to protect her feet from blisters whilst walking.  As she walked, the friction and moisture from her feet created the perfect conditions for transforming wool into felt.This is my adapted version which recaptures this ancient happening; it’s an experience resulting in beautiful moulds of your feet as an art object for display (they are not suitable as slippers as they are too soft!).  This is a lovely project to do with friends, family and children.  Walking, dancing or active games are required for up to an hour for the felting to happen.

    As always and in keeping with my local sourcing ethos, the wool comes from British farms only.

    What’s in the kit:

    • DVD which gives excellent instructions, plus a film of the original art project, interviews   and lots more
    • enough Blue-faced Exmoor British wool for 3 to 5 people, depending on foot size
    • printed notes/ instructions
    • presented in this beautiful felt bag
