Wool Felt

Wool Felt

Felted animal ornaments and soft sculptures bring the perfect touch of natural whimsy to any home.

Made from 100% sheep and alpaca wool, each features a carefully researched and intricately crafted native Virginia species.

How are these made?
Wool felting begins with already-colored, un-spun wool, in a large fluffy mass called roving. I use mainly sheep wool, and sometimes alpaca wool. I shape the wool using a barbed needle – this needle tangles the wool together into a firm sculpture that holds its shape, but still feels soft to the touch.

Sustainability
Rabbit & Wren is committed to using sustainable, ethical products. About 80% of my wool is locally sourced – sold directly from the farmer (who also preps and dyes the wool) to me.
