Welcome  to  Florrie Felts

Florrie Felts celebrates the  many fantastic attributes of wool through the medium of  Felt.

The brand has been  evolving quietly  in the Scottish West Highland community of Torridon  over the past  6 years,  as part of  CROFT7 .www.croft7.com . It now feels like the right time to  spread it's wings a little   and to help  promote the range of felt  being produced by Sheila Bates , this new website is being launched. It will grow  slowly . Sheila will take  you  on a journey  of her love of textiles,  the processes she uses today  to  create unique felt  for you  &  to  share  her passion  for traditional  techniques, some of which she has been  practising  for over 40 years.   Her  journey with feltmaking  began over 20 years ago ....  & the  passion  to share this just keeps  growing .

Above  are a few images  to introduce you to some of my  products  , colours and the character of my work.


What I love about feltmaking is the fact that  I am working  with a completely  natural raw material which means I can take it anywhere my imagination wants to go !    It is possible to create  a range of items ,from the  fine and delicate  to   the toughest  and most  robust of fabric .  The choice is endless.......

My range of work currently  includes  artwork, scarves, cafetiere cosies  in my own original design , jewellery 



The Gallery  depicts some of my work from across the  years  and  a small selection of my work currently available online can be found in Store . 

I am also  happy to work to commission.

 Mrs Fingal's Adventures   an occasional blog, meanders in & out of fact & fiction , in celebration of  fibre & felt.
