FEATURED SUPPLIER! – The Felted Rainbow

The Felted Rainbow sells Eco-fi craft felt – which is manufactured in the USA from recycled plastic bottles. They have 34 gorgeous colours which come in colour-themed packs, or you can choose your own custom mix. Joe & Jenny, who own The Felted Rainbow, discovered this product through their commitment to living sustainably. Jenny says “ We both have other Folksy shops selling our handmade bits and pieces crafted from recycled materials, and we discovered this fantastic eco felt. We were struggling to source it in the UK and thought that this was a real shame as it is such a great product, so we decided to start a business so that we could make it available for fellow crafters.

We have been getting some wonderful feedback from our customers and it’s brilliant to have other people getting as excited about the felt as we are ! As more and more people are becoming interested in being ‘greener’ in their day to day choices, we are glad to be able to offer something that can help make their crafting a little more eco-friendly”.

As well as checking out Joe & Jenny’s shop, you can also follow the Felted Rainbow blog which is full of ideas & pictures of gorgeous felt creations, and the place where you’ll get the first news of any special offers in the shop.
