Original Hand felted hats, jewellery and improvisations made traditionally in 100% natural wool fibre, with linen and silk fibre decoration.

Felted hats are naturally waterproof, and allow air to circulate. They are multi functional as they can also be sat on to enjoy a coastal view, or filled with wild pickings like hazelnuts and mushrooms. Hand wash in cold water only, then reshape. Woollen hats require little washing as they absorb and generate less odour than man made materials.

New works experiment with, local willow, Celtic drawing, and labour intensive prehistoric felting using locally sourced llyn wool straight from the sheep, these have influenced my previous hearts and flower range.
