About Blooming Felt
Blooming Felt Ltd started life in 2007 after its Founder (that’s me ... Sarah Tremelling), struggled to find certain items needed to complete a craft project. Since then, Blooming Felt has grown to become one of the UK's market leaders, if not THE, UK’s market leader of 100% wool felt craft supplies and is the original home of the “pick & mix” felt ball !
Blooming Felt Shedquarters Wall of Felt !
From felt sheets to felt purses, felt balls to felt string, we source and supply the best quality 100% wool felt from Fairtrade suppliers around the world. Our suppliers employ many underprivileged people and ensure they are paid fair salaries, along with providing both childcare and healthcare benefits, They also donate a percentage of their profits to local charities. By purchasing from us, you are helping to make a difference to these people.
We design and have our own suppliers make our felt products for us – many others are poor imitations, the majority being copied from our own designs. Please don’t be fooled by cheaper prices .... cheaper prices invariably means poorer quality. Paying just that little bit extra for Fairtrade supplies really does make a difference.
All of our 100% wool felt sheets have been tested and meet EN71 European Safety standards. This means that they contain no poisenous or banned chemicals. A copy of the test certificate for our 4mm thick felt sheets can be downloaded here and a Declaration of Conformity for our 1mm thick felt sheets can be downloaded here DISCLAIMER: These certificates and Declarations prove that our felt sheets meet EN71 standards. Blooming Felt Ltd accepts no responsibility or liability whatsoever with regard to further independent EN71 tests. If using our felt sheets in the design and construction of toys, you will need to obtain your own EN71 certification before offering your toy(s) for sale.
Alongside our felt supplies, we have a huge selection of buttons, ribbons, craft books & kits, flat pad findings, glues, threads and numerous other crafty items that we have sourced, used ourselves and know that other crafters will not necessarily need, but just HAVE to have ! We also specialise in needle felting supplies and stock over 40 different colours of wool roving, along with felting needles, sponges, tools and kits.
We’re constantly on the look-out for new product lines and are happy to search for and supply “hard to find” items requested by clients.
