    Hand Dyed Yarn - Natural Dye Process

    By using quality natural fibre and sourcing ethically produced natural dyes, we are able to produce beautiful hand dyed yarn. The colours from naturally dyed yarn are enthralling. Hand dyed yarns may be repeated but they can never be exactly the same. The natural dyeing process will depend on where the dyestuff was grown, how and when it was harvested, the fibres being dyed, and the method of application we use. All our hand dyed yarn will be 'on show' at Wonderwool Wales.

    In our Yarn Shop

    Complementing our hand dyed yarn, we have handmade ceramic yarn bowls and leading brands in the knitting, crochet and crafting world, such as Cocoknits, Cohana, LYKKE, muud and Thread and Maple. Also available are knitting, crafting and crochet books and magazines from world leading publishers, such as Faire and Laine.

     

     

    Wonderwool Wales - 2006 to Date

    It was originally established in 2006 in order to promote wool and natural fibre production and its use in Wales, but the event has grown substantially and now has worldwide appeal – in recent years there have been visitors from all over the UK, Europe Canada, Australia and the USA to name a few.

    Now each event has over 200 exhibitors and trade stands in three halls of the Royal Welsh Showground and thousands of visitors. The event celebrates and showcases all aspects of felting, knitting, weaving, spinning and crochet. There are also numerous opportunities to buy finished products such as raw materials, ‘how to’ training books and equipment with everything from knitting needles to Ashford Weaving Looms. There are also demonstration events for spinning, weaving etc as well as displays of live ‘wool producing’ animals such as sheep, goats, rabbits and alpacas. Wonderwool really is a great opportunity for visitors to see a huge range of Welsh and British artisan products and to meet the people who made them.

    A Wonderwool favourite is the Sheepwalk! You've heard of the Catwalk but the Sheepwalk requires you to model a woollen product and to walk along the Sheepwalk. Well perhaps next time...

      

    Campaign for Wool

    Launched in January 2010, the Campaign for Wool brings together leading figures from the fashion industry, interior design, wool carpet manufacturers as well as the world of insulation and building.

    Since its launch in 2010, The Campaign for Wool has influenced a new demand for wool on an international scale. Its efforts have seen an outstanding threefold increase in the price farmers receive for their wool.

    FelinFach has been an official supporter of the worldwide Campaign for Wool for many years and is listed on the Campaign's official supporter's web page. FelinFach is committed to the responsible sourcing of British wool and always looking for environmentally friendly yarn. Sheep wool is a fantastic resource for all wool clothing. Because of the properties of wool, it can be used in other ways, such as sheep wool insulation for buildings, duvets and bed covers.
