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.
