After being diagnosed with a neurological disorder in my 30s, I took up felting. As I felted my way through massive piles of wool and a lot of hot, soapy water, the Felted Kiwi was born.

Based in the Northland, I take my inspiration from New Zealand plants, animals and landscape-along with the occasional cocktail olive and my Devon Rex, Ed.

I felt New Zealand wool, mohair and alpaca sourced from around the country. New Zealand wools used include Merino, Corriedale, Lincoln, Romney, Gotland and English Leicester.

I also create my own soaps for the fragrance sensitive.

Commissions are welcome.
