Meet our Makers: Olwen Veevers

Olwen keeps a flock of coloured sheep on a small farm in South East Wales and sells fine fleeces to hand spinners and felt makers.  She is currently Chairman of the British Coloured Sheep Breeders’ Association, actively promoting the use of naturally coloured wool and is a director of Wonderwool Wales.

As well as selling fleece, Olwen is an enthusiastic felt maker and needle felter.  She enjoys producing models of various animals, especially her donkey Max, and is also developing a line of felt hangings and bags decorated with medieval style lettering.
