We are currently updating our stock to provide a comprehensive supply of felting supplies. We will also supply raw and washed, carded and spun natural Irish wool fibre and a selection of local Irish crafts.

The Muddle is in honour of my son Aaron O'Kelly and his beautiful soul. It means to be a community space where we can support each other and find a bit of peace through learning and friendship. The name comes from a mispronunciation of the middle. Aaron always wanted to be in the Muddle of a hug.
