Felting Feature in Inside Crochet

mavric purseIn addition to some great patterns, the new issue of Inside Crochet also features my article  on felting crochet. You’ll find lots of helpful hints and tips for beginners. I also designed three special projects to accompany the feature. My favourite is this pretty clip purse. The yarn was supplied by Lily Warne, a Dorset based, family company who source their wool from their own flock. I just love the colour palette. As many readers know, I am passionate about British wool and love to support British farmers and shepherds.  Lily Warne also sell a range of ready made items including festival blankets and hats. My favourite product in their range (apart from the wool – obviously) is this amazing pom pom – I have mine clipped to my keyring and it has been much admired. Come the winter, I might be tempted to sew it on to a big woolly hat!

Do take a minute to go and visit the Lily Warne website, drool over their wool and read all about the other parts of their family business and in particular  the Dartmoor Shepherd.

I’ll admit  I do have a bit of a soft spot for a freshly sheared sheep!
