DENISE HILL - FELTING

My name is Denise Hill and I’ve been felting for over 10 years.

In that time felting has become a popular craft with many books, tutorials and workshops available for all to experiment.

My felt is based on the nuno felt method introduced to the world by Australian, Polly Stirling. It combines wool fibre and silk (or other natural fabrics) together with soap, water and agitation (rolling) resulting in a fine and lightweight fabric.

My scarves are made with merino tops and silk saris and various fabrics. With so many different breeds of sheep (therefore different fleeces) not only scarves and wearables such as dresses, coats, vests and shawls but footwear and hand bags can all be made with felt.

Felt has come a long way since we cut out flowers and shapes for projects at school!
