Tough Love Stripe

Love Fest Fibers Hand Felted Wool

Tough Love Stripe

Oatmeal / Cream
Charcoal / Heather
  • Handfelted in Nepal from pure New Zealand wool

    A variegated take on our original Tough Love collection. Each ball is skillfully hand felted with multiple hues by our team in Kathmandu. 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 Stripe takes 3-4 hours to felt. We've been partnering with our workshop of skilled women artisans to create our Tough Love series since early 2014. Today it helps provide vital job opportunities as they and their families face Nepal's development challenges.
