Cosy Mama creates contemporary, original and functional handmade felted wool and alpaca fibre products. The name came about when whilst wearing a fleecy top, her son decided that she was 'Cosy Mama' [instead of just plain ol' Mama!] With such a cute name, that perfectly matches the cosy handmade felted products she had to have it!
Cosy Mama has an eco-friendly ethos, uses UK sourced materials and supports small scale suppliers where possible. Therefore the majority of wool used is British with some 100% organic products also available, made with organic wool from sheep grazing in the Pembrokeshire countryside. Recently supersoft alpaca fibre has been added to the materials used and once again this is British sourced from alpacas born and bred in the UK.
Time and care was taken to source British wool in subtle shades which are complimented by the colours and styles of the motifs. Our organic wool comes from a flock of Shetland sheep from a small-holding in Pembrokeshire, certified as organic by the Soil Association, and prepared at a local mill giving it a low carbon footprint.
The current collections of Felted Baby Booties, Coasters, Hot Water Bottle Covers and Tablet Sleeves are all handmade using traditional wet felting and needle felting techniques. The designs are completely seamless and are shaped by hand. The process of felting each item by hand is done with attention to detail in the design and finish. Their handmade nature means each product may vary slightly which adds to their unique quality.
