Karen has a passion for creating felted items with Merino wool. She was inspired by felting when she first came across it in Australia in 2000. In 2004 she started hand-dying up her own colour range as there was no one else in South Africa doing this. She now offers a colour range of over 60 vibrant hand-dyed wools including Merino, Karakul and Mohair Curls. She now supplies wool, equipment and handmade items to various shops all over South Africa and also sells direct to the public. She enjoys creating Waldorf-style toys for children, which she sells in small quantities.
