Our Etsy Store

Since starting the website a couple of months ago, we’ve had lots of great comments and interesting feedback. Some of the things we’ve noticed since starting the site, and more recently, the forum, is that more people would experiment with different fibres if they were more easily available and not quite so expensive.

So, we’ve opened an etsy store 🙂 The four of us have all been felting for quite a few years now and all have our favourite fibre suppliers, both locally and internationally. It’s not our aim to make a profit from selling fibres, but to use that knowledge, along with our own skills to source fibres and felting supplies and make them more accessible and affordable, especially to beginners who would like to try sample sizes without having to pay extra for them.

We’ve started with a silk fibre sample pack. This has 20g each of silk hankies, silk noil, silk carrier rods and silk throwsters waste. We’ll be adding more items as they become available. We’ve already had lots of feedback on the forum about the kinds of things people are interested in: samples of plastic, nylon, viscose and cotton fibres; handmade yarn samples; a sample pack of different silk fabrics; buttons and beads, and sewing threads; and embellishment fibres.

We’ll be keeping our eyes out for bargains or offers that we can then pass on through etsy but we’d love to hear from you if you have any ideas for things you’d like to see. There’s a button on the sidebar to take you to etsy or just click the link below. Feel free to contact us on etsy if you have any specific requests 🙂

    What a great idea. I have been wondering about getting hold of some of the unusual fibres you have mentioned. Sample packs will be ideal for the felting group I’m in when we want to try something new or there is a beginner in the class. Thanks girls
    cheers Liz

      Hi Louise, sorry we couldn’t keep the etsy store open, we didn’t know until after we’d signed up and had sales etc that we couldn’t pay fees through paypal, and it was too complicated to try to set up international banking for the 4 of us.
      We have a fibre marketplace on our Forum http://feltandfiberstudio.proboards.com/ and there are some mixed silk packs available at the moment if you’re interested.
      sorry about that.

We love comments and love to hear your opinions. Thanks for stopping by.
