Let us dive in, shall we!


1. Sea Life needle felting kit

As a company that is situated on the lovely island of Texel, we have a strong connection to the sea and so we hope the sea is enjoyed responsibly.

To celebrate all the aquatic animals, we developed a needle felting starter kit with sealife as theme. This kit was developed to build upon the huge success of our dinosaur needle felting starter kit and serves an audience that wants to get into needle felting and (for unknown reasons) does not love Dino’s ;-).

This kit contains everything you need to start needle felting; a pad, needles, instructions how to make the various sea life creatures, and enough wool to make them PLUS a lot of extra wool for your own creative sea creatures or corals.


2. Oogst Natural Dyes

Fiber artists and sustainable fashion enthusiasts have recently rediscovered the joy that is natural dyeing.

This ancient art is enjoyable and experimental; there are as many recipes as there are artists and the different dyes respond differently to the large variety of base materials to dye.

Oogst Natural Dyes is our collection of natural dyeing resources, from the natural dyes to the mordants.

This is the perfect gift for the experienced crafter or artist who wants to go into a new field and does not shy away from experimentation.
