Ann Pennington - Textiles

Ann Pennington


Hand made uniquely crafted, textiles made from natural fibres mainly wool. I make hand spun, woven, knit bags, gloves and corsage.


I spin, weave on a Louet table loom with 8 shafts. Dye and felt hand made , uniquely designed items such as bags, gloves, homeware. I am a member of the International Felt Makers Association. A popular item is a felting kit to get you started wet felting a flower brooch. Which includes merino tops, silks, beads. I work from home. I dye my hand spun yarn with natural dyes from flowers I grow in my Garden.
