My name is Vicky. I started Luna Wolf back in 2008 when I was at university. I had always hated using disposable pads, but didn’t realise there was any alternative. When I heard about cloth menstrual pads, my mind was blown! I had to try some. I bought two pads from a Wholefoods store on holiday in the States. Of course I was hooked. There weren’t many cloth pad sellers in the UK back then, so I decided to learn to make my own. I had a few orders from friends and family, which inspired me to start my own online shop – and so Luna Wolf was born.
I had a wonderful few years making and selling cloth pads, and gradually added other items to my store including the pattern/tutorial set, menstrual cups, wet bags, fabric, etc. I met some lovely people and learnt a lot about running a business.
In 2012/13 I stopped making cloth menstrual pads in order to pursue a career as a medical secretary, and I am now proud to work for the NHS. I live in Shropshire with my partner, our rescued lurcher, and our recendly adopted cat. When I’m not at work I usually have knitting needles in my hands and a cup of tea on the go. I’m still a dedicated cloth pad user, and am very happy to see reusable menstrual products becoming more and more accepted.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the patterns.
