No More Woolies

Dear Friends of Wooliedales,


Sadly, there will be no more Woolies.


Carol, my dear wife, passed from this life to her glorious reward in Heaven on February 11, 2014. She has fought a valiant battle against MDS, then leukemia, since June 2012.


Many people have drawn inspiration from Carol’s work, first begun in 2000, and have gone on to become excellent felters in their own right.


Always giving, Carol donated 10% of the proceeds from her dog sculptures to a rescue organization for that breed and often donated Woolies to rescue groups for raffles and fundraisers..


To her many friends and customers, we are so very grateful for your support over the years.


I will keep the Wooliedales.com website active for a time so that some of her beautiful work will live on in pictures.


This is one of the last Woolies she felted, much to the delight of nurses and staff, while hospitalized in November, 2013.







I miss her greatly.

Carol was one of the nicest people that I have ever met in my entire life and I will miss her for a very long time. You remain in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs to you, David.
