Fibreshed Producer

Kulu Textiles

Shepton Mallet
Botanically dyed wool and woven products from our Shropshire flock.

I am a textile artist and designer working with natural fibres and natural dyes. We live off grid on eight acres of land which we manage regeneratively. We have planted an orchard, small woodland and over 2000 native hedgerow plants. We have a wild flower meadow and a flock of six Shropshire sheep which we use to manage our orchards and increase the fertility of our soil.

I have had the fleece from our sheep processed at the Natural Fibre Company and I now have spun woollen yarn which I have been naturally dying with plants grown on our land and I am having some dyed organically at Paintbox Textiles in Yorkshire (due to this service been unavailable in the South West). I would like to promote and sell the wool and products made with the wool through my fibre shed profile and events.
