About Woolly Doodles

Woolly Doodles felted art is made with blood, sweat and tears…mainly from all the stabbing into the wool and sometimes my fingers. On this website you will see all kinds of wool art, workshops where you can learn to needle felt, get some good woolly info and buy a Woolly Doodle of your own.

My name is Cathy Disbrow and I’m a fiber artist and teacher working in the craft of needle felting and wet felting. The goal of felting is to connect wool fibers together to create something out of nothing – a pin, a figure, a 2-D felted portrait, or a piece of functional art. All my creations are uniquely handmade with lots of energy, sweat, and love.
