Workshop Fleece Felting
Undyed woolfibers - workshops Wool Painting
Felting local wool
Annalies van Eerde is a Dutch feltmaker who started her own company at 2008. She uses the fibres of our own natural authentique Dutch Heath-sheep or for example the "Texelaar" from the Dutch Islands.
She sources the fleece from shepherds which she receive raw right after shearing.
A big attraction of Dutch wool is that it is entirely renewable. The technique or "recipes" to make them are drawn from Mongolian felt traditions. She transformates the fibers into a sustainable timelessly ecological & natural Home Decor product Eco Felts.
Annalies likes to share her Arts & Crafts to others.

Fleece Felting - make your own rug
Learn how to make an organic fleece rug - straight off the sheep- with step-by-step instructions.You don’t have to kill an animal for this attractive faux sheepskin rug.
You will learn the beautiful technique of felting a shorn-off fleece. The results are always amazing! Fleece felting is a very tactile experience and beginner friendly! The workshop starts by chosing your own fleece from our collection. There are various fleeces to choose from; Drenth Heath, Zwart Bles, Ouessant, Gotland.
During a process of warm water and soap you're washing and felting the fleece at the same time. Not much soap and water is needed! The felt will get clean after rinsing in our machine. This fun-felting technique makes the most of longwool fleece to create felt which retains the longwool’s characteristic luster and curl.
