Hi  !     And welcome  to  Florrie Felts  . Are you passionate about  wool...     I am  !  

 You have stepped into a place where wool is king . As a feltmaker , spinner and dyer I have worked with wool, 

now in Wester Ross, Scotland, for over 40 years.

My felt products,created for you , your family and your home include rugs , Florries'  & 'Shepherd's Stars' ,Feltscapes , scarves  &   funky jewellery . They all help reap the benefits of    real wool   for you  and help us all  

in treading more lightly  on the land.

My  ! how the  past  3 months have vanished .   Spring  is definitely here. Cuckoo , violets, celandines & carpets of primroses. The longer warmer days and the dawn chorus all calling me outside. 

                                                      May Day and Beltane Blessings

But what of the  felting shed   ?

 The year ahead  offers the chance to spend more time outside, where my heart sings as well as  more space to my  creative  self. 

This will  still include creating Florries & Shepherds Stars but not on the scale  I have been operating  in recent years. The reality is  .....

  My  capacity to  produce felt on the scale of recent years  has fallen   dramatically .

I am now only   supplying 2 outlets. Both working crofts with small sales  studios/ sheds on their  premises , focusing largely on  textiles &  very local makers.    In order to to help   mutually support these dedicated crofters I am   for the next wee while taking all my stock   'off line '   .   

A strange strategy you may say  for a website .!   But there will be  new products  to  see    in about a months time.

Scarves.....  Florries......  and even some  art work if we are lucky.

                                                                                                                                             Enjoy  exploring your new freedoms.
