I’m all about doing what feels good and comes naturally. I get a lot of inspiration for colour from my allotment and surrounding countryside here in mid Wales. I’m very lucky to live here and be inspired every day. To contact me or find out more click here.


Tania Oakshott (WekiWool)

Handspun art yarns; also a range of hand-made bags or clothing items made from the handspun yarns. You can see more here.


Penlon Studio

Handcrafted in Wales. Nestled in the Cambrian Mountains of mid Wales, Penlon Studio is a husband and wife team creating individual pieces of art handcrafted from native hard woods. Our timber is locally sourced from Wales and the Welsh borders from managed woodlands. Every item we make is unique and its form is dictated by the wood itself. Each piece is stamped with a date of creation and unique identifier, then finished with a light natural oil or wax to enhance the natural beauty of the grain and to protect the wood. See more here.


Border Bears

I specialise in the production of fine fleeces, in a variety of colours, for sale to hand-spinners and felt-makers. In order to ensure that I can keep my sheep in the manner to which they are accustomed, I also use their wool to spin, felt and needle felt a range of woollen articles for sale. These include hand-spun yarns, sturdy shopping bags, slippers, cushions, personalised place-mats and all sorts of small needle-felted creatures. I also enjoy running needle-felting workshops and doing my best to convince the world of the merits of wool. Find out more here.
