Portrait No 4 – Lynn, Extreme Felter and Woollen Creator

2 Comments

This week I got to meet the lovely Lynn and visit another home that was a riot of colour and texture with a hobby that could so easily take over the whole home if given the chance. Lynn really has taken a hobby to its very extremes, she’s not content with buying a few balls of wool and doing a bit of knitting. She buys fleece (straight from the sheep in some cases!) washes and dies it, cards it and then either felts it or spins it so that she can make something woollen.

I was lucky enough to have a fascinating demonstration of Nuno felting and am now the proud owner of a beautiful felted scarf.

Lynn’s business is delightfully named “Art-felt Designs by Nanny Lynn” and she can be found at various craft fairs including Bromley Cross Village Hall on the last Saturday of each month.

Lynn is also now on Facebook and her page can be found here.
