Hand Felted Clothing & Knit Artwear

Carolyn M. Barnett Designs located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada has specialized in one of a kind, hand loomed knit cardigans & jackets and wraps using wool and cotton…My Knit Artwear!….and my Felted Wearables…for 40 years.

Now semi-retired but still creating, my work is available from my studio, by appointment. Some of my work may also be purchased at my online shops and at some shows.

Founded in Toronto in 1982 on June 2nd I am celebrating four decades as an artisan.

Giving workshops and classes in Machine Knitting, felting, polymer clay Button Making and Garment Designer, the software I use. I’ve traveled far and wide to spread the word!
