Each and every Felt so good product is crafted entirely by hand, not only making each character wonderfully unique but also keeping our environmental footprint to an absolute minimum as we create no pollution!
This is how our products are created…
Our raw, ethically sourced wool arrives in Nepal from New Zealand. The first thing that happens is the carding and cleaning of this natural by-product. Raw wool is carded to remove any debris or dirt.
The wool is then spun into amazing cobweb like structures that removes all the unorganised clumps of fibres and realigns them into a suitable material to work with. This wool is then safely removed by our carding specialists and rolled up, ready for dying!
The dying process involves taking these carded bundles of fluffy wool fibres and putting them into our specialist containers that allow steam and the coloured pigments to work together to dye our natural wool any colour possible!
The steam used in all processes is produced from burning off cuts of wood from local carpenters in order to reduce wastage from nearby villages and all the water used is purified on site in an ecological manner.
After 3 – 5 hours in the steamer, this wool is now vibrantly coloured and ready for drying. After a few minutes in the foot peddled dryer it then basks in the sunshine until dry. Our wonderful wool is then ready to be sent off to the felting department.
This colourful wool will then pass through the skilled hands of our wet felting team, our needle felting team and our embroidery team who bring our fabulous designs to life.
