Interest in all types of felting seems to be absolutely exploding. It’s attracting the attention of a whole new group and generation of crafters that often don’t do any of the traditional forms of needlework. Felting offers a whole new world for creating unique and treasured garments, not to mention decorative or functional objects for the home. Many felters are discovering our fibres here at the shop, and we have begun to carry gadgets, tools and books to help them with their craft.
