Goods & Faves

On this page you will find suggested products that will help with your felting journey. We can't stock everything in-house but we definitely want to point you in the direction of things that Sara has found to be useful.

We will also be including some fun Goods & Faves that Sara and the Sarafina crew loves!

Mug Warmer - Option One

We have used these mug warmers for workshops and feel that they get the job done. You will need a plate or dish to set on top for melting your Swax.

Mug Warmer - Option Two

This is Sara's favorite mug warmer and the one that she uses all the time for her Swax melting. The lip is a little smaller and may allow you
to use a wider range of dishes.

Lavender Spray

There are a lot of lavender sprays out there! This is the one that Sara uses to spritz her critters to keep the moths at bay. We make no promises that it will 100% work against stubborn moths but it is a great step towards protecting them!
