Felt Art

A mobile future

Cot & Wool

Creative home projects during lockdown spawned many new ‘kitchen table’ enterprises,  including Cotswold small business Cot & Wool.

After founder Georgia Gibbs welcomed a baby in 2020, maternity leave created time for her to try needle felting – a craft using a barbed needle to firm, compact and shape loose wool fibres into 3D creations. Designing little brightly-coloured decorative spheres and lifelike animals, Georgia made a one-off Cowboy-themed mobile for the nursery to complement a much-loved child’s chair made by her grandmother.

After showing the result to friends, orders followed, leading Georgia to feature a few mobiles on her Instagram page.  In time, Cot & Wool was born.

Where possible, Georgia sources her wool and materials in the UK for her artisan mobiles, and offers a made-to-order service for customers who have a particular theme or colour scheme in mind.

We’ll be welcoming Georgia and the Cot & Wool Pop-Up to Yarnton between 20th and 23rd December. Pop along to meet Georgia and see her range of hand-crafted felt mobiles and Christmas decorations. We’re sure you’ll be won over by these charming creations.
