Super chunky yarn like no other. Each vibrant ball of Tough Love is skillfully hand felted in Kathmandu. Tough Love was given its name for a reason - you'll find that it's super strong and resilient felt. This rough and tumble member of the Love Fest family is fantastic for rugs, poufs, pet beds and baskets as well as macrame and weaving projects.
Each 50-yard ball of Tough Love takes 3-4 hours to create. The partnership with the skilled women artisans in Kathmandu has been creating Tough Love since early 2014. Today it helps provide vital job opportunities as they face ongoing development challenges.

We make eco-friendly choices by producing fabrics with respect to people and the planet. Our crafted goods support small farms, mills, weavers, and textile artists. Small batch, locally sewn, everyday goods.
All farms and sources use the best wastewater practices, even in poor countries. We maintain integrity by using high environmental standards, GOTS, fair trade, and USA farmed materials when possible.
We support sustainable farming, weaving, and dyeing practices. Our fabrics use vegetable and plant-based dyes, so there is no worry of toxic chemicals. No smell, no mildew, and biodegradable materials.
Help clean up the junk on earth, in your life, and in your home. We take no waste seriously. Sizes of napkins and tea towels are determined because we work hard to not waste any fabric. Scraps are always used!
