Shop Update!

I just finished updating the inventory in my shop. This is the last of the "pre-made" (ie: items I made for the craft fair) creatures I have on hand. Some are going other places and aren't being listed on Etsy. I'm in the process of making foxes, owls, Matryoshka dolls, lions, and polar bears - but life is still a bit hectic and I'm not sure when they'll all get finished. I'm also working on a Wiener dog that is possibly my most favorite creation yet.

Here is a picture of a Narwhal that I've been working on for over a month. Since he's made with fine mo' roving, he's harder to needle felt. The softer the fibers, the more difficult it is to get them to felt. His tusk took a long time, but it's actually sort of spirally like a real Narwhal tusk. He's pretty dang cute.

I think he's one of my favorite creations ever...and he's for sale in my shop!

On Wool and the Future of Woolnimals

I love animals. The greatest moments in my life involve animals. In fact, there isn’t a fond memory that I have that doesn’t somehow include animals or the natural world.
It’s not surprising that my hobbies and artistic pursuits have always involved the animal world as well. Over time, my interests focused on needle felting and creating small friends that make me smile and bring joy to others. I’ve had my Woolnimals needle felting business for nearly a decade and it has been a huge source of happiness and relaxation for me.
Shortly before I left college, I changed my major from English to Eco-Psychology. I began studying the connections between humans and the natural world. My studies focused on the understanding that direct experiences with wilderness and the natural world foster compassion and a sense of place. In turn, this sense of belonging fosters stewardship for the natural world. When we feel that we’re an important part of something, we tend to take care of it. We come to …
