About Blooming Felt
Blooming Felt Ltd started life in 2007 after its Founder (that’s me ... Sarah), struggled to find certain items needed to complete a craft project. Blooming Felt quickly grew to become one of the UK's market leaders in 100% wool felt craft supplies and was the original home of the “pick & mix” felt ball and one of the first companies in the UK to stock needle felting supplies.
Blooming Felt Shedquarters Wall of Felt !
From felt sheets to felt purses, felting wools to felting and needle felting accessories, we source and supply only the best quality 100% wool and 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.
All of our wools and felt sheets have been tested and meet EN71 European Safety standards. This means that they contain no poisonous or banned chemicals. A copy of the test certificate for our 4mm thick felt sheets can be downloaded here (please note that our thick felt sheets are made from our needle felting wools and the certificate therefore covers both products). A Declaration of Conformity for our 1mm thick felt sheets can be downloaded here . A copy of the test certificate for our Merino and Corriedale wools can be found here and here. DISCLAIMER: These certificates and Declarations prove that our wools and 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 or wools in the design and construction of toys, you will need to obtain your own EN71 certification before offering your toy(s) for sale.
Over the years, we have changed our product offering to ensure we are supplying the best quality and most popular products, as requested by our lovely customers. In 2018, we took the very hard decision to downsize our product offering (which had, to be quite honest, got completely out of control), and concentrate on our most popular ranges. Those ranges were our needle felting and felting supplies. We have built up a fantastic range of wools, kits and accessories and add to them on a regular basis. We currently have over 40 different colours of needle felting wools, 50 colours of Merino wool tops, numerous Merino blends, Corriedale wools, hand-dyed curly locks, core wool and fancy fibres. You can buy all of our wools and fibres as "pick & mix" or save some money by purchasing them in ready packaged colourways. Whether you're new to needle felting or felting, or an experienced crafter, we have everything you need. Our kits are available as both felting and needle felting starter kits and we also stock a lovely range of needle felting brooch kits, which make perfect gifts.
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.
Whilst we sell mainly online (which does, of course, mean you can shop 24/7, 365 days a year !) Blooming Felt can often be found at the Knitting & Stitching Show held at Alexandra Palace, London.
We were very excited to be invited to exhibit at Kirstie Allsopp's Handmade Fair which was held at Hampton Court Palace in September 2014. Visit our blog to see the fun we had !
In 2013 our first book "Felt Fantastic" was published. Whilst we no longer supply many of the products used in the book, we are always happy to talk to customers about the projects in the book and offer advice and help with the projects, should they need it.
Our extensive client list includes Stately Homes, Royal Palaces, TV & Theatre Production Companies, Craft & Gift Shops, Hairdressers, Fashion Designers, Upholsterers, Magicians, Schools and Universities. We have even been known to supply to Royalty !!
Our large returning customer base is testament to the fact that we provide excellent quality products and the many lovely emails and comments we receive from both new and existing customers prove that our products and customer service are pretty good !
