Welcome to Gilliangladrag. Fluff is our religion. And here is what we believe:

1. We believe making stuff makes you happy :-)

2. We believe that there's no such thing as too much wool. That's definitely not a thing.

3. We believe in an inspirational 'stash' & craft cupboard. That is the root of all creative possibility & satisfaction, and well, if you've got that, then you must be doing something right.

4. We believe you have the right to add as many pompoms & tassels as you want. Decoration is life.

5. We believe in fluffy stuff. Both physically and metaphoricafluffilly.

6. And we believe in our Grandmas - they led the way and taught us what we know; we are but revolutionaries knitting, crocheting, felting, weaving and stitching with neon pink & adding more pompoms than is normal...

Quick Guide to Needle Felting 3D Shapes

Quick Guide to Needle Felting 3D Shapes

One of THE most important things about needle felting 3D shapes is the way you 'wrap up' the merino wool tops you're working with. It's IMPERATIVE to get as much of the 'air' out of it as possible when you are creating a little shape. I don't use a different core wool, or anything inside, - I simply needle felt the merino wool tops into the shape I need...

Here's my quick and simple guide to needle felting 3D shapes, which accompanies my recent free live tutorial on YouTube.

How To Make My Easy (FAST) Extreme Crochet Cushion Using ' Wooltops ' Yarn

Giant Knitting or Giant Crochet (also referred to as Extreme Knitting and Extreme Crochet) is now - understandably - very popular.

I've designed this cushion project which only takes 500g of Wool Tops, and is SUPER FAST to make! (No really - I'm talking about half an hour to crochet the front - if that!) Read on...
