"Stargazing In The Desert" by Artist Tracy Laasch

About us

Welcome to The Felted Desert

We are an Arizona, USA,  family owned company, located in the heart of the Valley in Phoenix, surrounded by the beautiful mountains and cactus filled desert, where the gorgeous sunsets paint the skies with stunning colors of purples, reds, blues, pinks, and yellows creating the most amazing scenery. 

The Felted Desert is owned and operated by Sculptural Mixed Media/Felting Artist Tracy Laasch, and her husband Brian. Tracy's sister Toni also works with The Felted Desert, creating some of our signature felting pads from her studio in Austin, TX. Cal Vander Cooi is a woodworking Artist in Scottsdale, AZ who also works with The Felted Desert creating our amazing ART-BLOCK Wet Felting/Fulling Block Boards. Cal also creates beautiful yarn bowls which can be found on his website below. Each of his amazing art pieces are handcrafted in stunning woods and personally signed as collectors items.

​We love everything about wool and felting. At The Felted Desert, we carry an extensive range of quality wool, fibers, tools, supplies, kits and tutorials, and hold in person classes in our shop/studio to support your needle felting & wet felting needs. We are here to provide you with the best quality supplies, information and support for all your felting projects. We do not sell anything we would not use ourselves. 

​Our staff is ready to assist you and answer all of your questions, and to help you choose colors, select the best fibers for the desired project, and help make sure you have all the tools you need when you are ready to begin your first or 100th felting project. If you need assistance at any time, give us a call, or drop us an email through our "contact us" page, and we will be happy to help.  And... please email us photos of your finished art projects using our wool, and you might gain a spot on our Featured Artists page!

We love to see what you are up to!

Burney, Annie Oakley, & Tucker (Trouble) Laasch

Burney, Annie Oakley & Tucker are our studio greeters, and head up our moral support department. They are in charge of keeping everyone on task and happy at The Felted Desert. They also work as door security, and delivery package inspectors, and they do a great job! I would say they work cheap, but there's the treats, toys, organic dog food, grooming services, t-shirts, etc... so trust us when we say they are well paid!

You can see they are hard at work on the latest delivery- going through a thorough inspection of each and every box, and finally..... APPROVED! 🐶🐶🐶
