The wool for Claudy Jongstra’s felt textiles comes from her own flock of rare native sheep. She has succeeded in developing an industrial technique for the felting process. Her textiles are unique and highly varied. The raw materials may include wool, linen, cashmere, camelhair and silk. The textiles range in thickness from a thin, transparent gauze to a very thick, coarse carpet. They are usable for curtains, furniture fabrics, mats and space dividers.
