Fiber Artists

I'm very happy to be newly pairing up with the super talented Jan of Four Winds Farm in Gorham.  Jan is a Fiber Artist with a small flock of her very own sheep!  She makes the most gorgeous needle felted sculptures such as dogs, cats, rabbits, cows and more.  Needle felting is a way of entangling the fibers together using a sharp needle with burrs.
Look at how amazing this is!
 She also spins yarn AND can spin custom yarn from your pet which then can be knit into a soft sweater or scarf!   She also makes beautiful felted soaps.  This is where Casco Bay Soap Co. comes in.  Jan has purchases some of my soaps and will be felting around them for wonderfully, beautiful felted bars of soap.
Please visit Jan's website to see her amazing creations -!products

BUT I also have been working with Susan of Felt Experience in New Gloucester.   She has been purchasing my soaps for well over a year now and felting them to sell alongside her gorgeous hats, vest scarves and other creations that she makes in her New Gloucester studio.   She felts some soaps for me and I sell them at my markets.  Susan wet felts which is wet felting which is a way of entangling the wool fibers with soap, water and agitation.

Look at this amazing hat she made!
