She has sourced all the fleece from around New Zealand and spins it herself on her Majacraft spinning wheel. She knits at the speed of light and can whip up a pair of slippers in a night... just like that! (sadly, this is a skill I did not inherit, a scarf is my limit... in time for the following winter).
This weekend she decided to open a Felt shop (New Zealand equivalent to Etsy). She will start by selling her slippers in 4 different natural wool colours (size 6 months to 18 months) and 2 colours in super soft alpaca especially for new born to 6 months. Both of my children have grown up wearing these slippers and they are the only ones that have stayed on their feet!

So if you have a little one in your life that needs some practical, snugly, hard wearing slippers take a look at my mum's shop on Felt... you will be pleased you did.
