Using traditional wet felting techniques, her designs are individually handmade from high quality merino wool to create a unique product.

“Felt is my passion, my obsession! I am still amazed by the almost magical transformation from raw unspun wool to a fabulously versatile textile. I love the texture, I love its sculptural properties, I love the way that colours can be combined and overlain – almost like watercolours. I never fail to be stunned by the results.”
