Tough Love

Handfelted in Nepal from pure New Zealand wool

Super chunky yarn like no other. Each vibrant ball of Tough Love is skillfully hand felted by our team in Kathmandu. And Tough Love was given its name for a reason– you'll find that it's super strong and resilient felt. This rough and tumble member of the Love Fest family is fantastic for rugs, poufs, pet beds and baskets as well as macrame and weaving projects.

Each 50-yard ball of Tough Love takes 3-4 hours to create. We've been partnering with our workshop of skilled women artisans to create Tough Love since early 2014. Today it helps provide vital job opportunities as they face ongoing development challenges.
