Welcome! At Grey Fox Mercantile, we offer felting workshops, over 175 colors of wool fiber and felting supplies, our own Grey Fox Felting line of felting kits, as well as a curated selection of artisan goods by makers we love.

How it all started…

In 2015, Erin founded Grey Fox Felting, an e-commerce business specializing in her unique needle felted animal sculptures and felting supplies. She then began developing her own line of complete felting kits and offer felting classes at local venues throughout the community. As the inventory began to take over their home, Erin and John decided to look for a storefront, a space that would allow customers to select their supplies in person, and that would also serve as a permanent workshop space for Erin to host her felting classes.

The space also features a gallery with rotating exhibits from local, regional and national artists. John, who is also an artist, has worked in galleries around the country, and has been looking for opportunities to curate and organize exhibitions to feature different artists.
