The Manchester Museum is very well known for its Taxidermy, but is also now pleased to be involved with.. Wulydermy. For Louise Worthington, the founder of Wulydermy, who’s been perfecting the art of sculptural needle felt, has been so inspired by our recent Santa Fe Harlequin Toad Breeding that she has been working on a new project – you guessed it, producing a beautiful felted Harlequin Toad.

Not only has Louise made some fabulous felted tropical toads to add to her collection but has very kindly made available a step by step set of instructions for you to easily make your very own. All the profits from this set of instructions will be donated directly to the Panama Wildlife Conservation Charity (PWCC) to support the Harlequin Toads from the Santa Fe National Park, Panama, and we are very grateful to Louise for all her support.

More usually inspired by the British countryside, Louise makes unique, life size animals and birds, using sculptural needle felt techniques. She only uses top quality British Rare Breeds wool, British wools. The Needle felt, and the launch of ‘Wulydermy’ has allowed Louise to combine her passion for the British countryside and wildlife into a full time job.

She runs online workshops that have stemmed from her knowledge of creating original needle-felted animals, and ‘Wulydermy’ has been accredited by the The Rare Breeds Survival Trust, who support the future of rare and native breeds.

Apart from the new Harlequin Toads, Louise offers a great range of British Wool Needle Felt Kits for you to make your own felted creatures.

She inspires others to care for wildlife and to felt with 100% British wool and that from rare breeds, which in turn supports their conservation.
