About Vasanto

I have been working with wool and color since learning to knit as a young child. I have studied felt making with Beth Beede, Chad Hagen, Jean Hicks and others.

I use traditional wet felting techniques for hat making and wall hangings. In the last couple of years I have been exploring nuno felt - the use of silk and other fabrics with wool in order to make very flexible felted fabrics for scarves and other clothing. About 2 years ago I started to dye some of my own wool and silks. I love working with these materials. They are soft, rich and extremely versatile and they allow me to express many different parts of myself. I hope you will enjoy my uniques creations and the special textures and softness of handmade felt.
