Bobbin Around has a range of her beautiful cobweb felted scarves in store.
Cobweb felting is a process which creates a strong piece of work from only one layer of wool, which is lightweight but super warm. The result is finer than other felting methods . Naturally occurring holes are created -hence 'cobweb'- and are part of the attraction of this method. Olive oil soap to produce my scarves, which come in a wide range of colours and are priced at £20 each from Fabrication . This felting method produces a soft lightweight scarf which can be worn against the skin. After care is easy too, just hand wash, do not spin, just wring out excess water and dry flat on a radiator.
On the clothing front, Ages of Elegance have some gorgeous winter dresses in store (and also make to order so no worrying about finding the right size for you) and Rowan Tree Designs has a variety of elegant capes, wraps and shrugs to keep out the cold.
And once you've bought all your woolies, we have something to help you look after them too...
Keep your winter woolies feeling soft and smelling fresh with Woolly Wash from LITTLE BEAU SHEEP. This gentle washing liquid has a high, natural lanolin content which restores and refreshes your fine woollens and other delicate fabrics. Perfect for this time of year.
Also made from 100% wool are the sheep dryer balls. Simply pop them in your tumble dryer and they will reduce your drying times by separating the layers of laundry, allowing the hot air to circulate. They also eliminate the need for fabric softeners or dryer sheets as they soften clothes naturally, increasing fluffiness and reducing static as the dryer tumbles. They are cute too : )
