ragamuffin loves...fabulous felt!

We came upon the amazing Kate Ramsay, felter extrordinaire, whilst in Dublin recently and instructed her to make us some of her fabulous felt accessories at once! They are here already - adding more than a splash of colour to both of our shops!

All of Kate's pieces are made using natural, undyed silk/ wool fibres and are individually dyed meaning that no two items are ever quite the same.

As well as scarves, Kate also makes these wonderful, giant felt flowers - pin to chunky knits, jackets or bags for drama!

We think they'd also look wild worn in the hair - we made a simple hair wrap and added the flower to the crown...
Now we've gone headpiece crazy! Here are a couple of smaller felt corsages pinned to a hair wrap made from a hank of our colinette yarn!
