    We design and make by hand wool hats and scarves. We collect sheep wool from local farmers where we clean, card, felt and dye the wool. Once the wool is felted we design by hand and chain stitch Celtic symbols or designs from Petroglyphs onto the hats. We also make other hats hats using the wet felting method. Our scarves are made using the wet felting method and nuno felting where we use a combination of wool and silk together. We have taught Nuno felting at a number of art show.
