Fibreshed Producer


Thoughtful products with 100% natural fibres

Bellacouche lovingly creates earth friendly felt products from the region’s holistically managed wool flocks.


Wool Felt for you and your home

I design and hand-make beautiful felted organic wool items for the home, from cosy hot-water-bottle covers to tea cosies, plastic-free felting kits to warm, comfy boot or shoe insoles.


Wool Felt for green burial

Wool creates a soft and comforting focus for a funeral ceremony. Our loved one is wrapped in the gentle folds of a thick wool felt cocoon or shroud. I offer a unique range of biodegradable coffin alternatives for natural burial or cremation. My work focuses on practical aesthetics, natural burial and minimising the environmental impact of cremation.


Caring for the Planet and Animal Welfare

The fine Shetland wool I use comes direct from Fernhill Farm in Somerset, and Challacombe Farm, Dartmoor. Other textiles used are either hemp or salvaged cotton textiles from Proper Job, Chagford.
