For our family, a family of sci-fi, fan fiction, vampire loving (and hating) fans, the hardest part was choosing which of theEnchantedWool's dolls would come live with us. Many heated debates later - the die was cast: Buffy, a strong, powerful, fearless young woman, would join us. She arrived a couple of days later, beautifully wrapped, delicate and fearsome both at once, causing much excitement and debate over where exactly she was going to live. Thank you theEnchantedWool, she is gorgeous!

About

"The Enchanted Wool", where fantasy is made real

I have always loved fantasy stories about fairies, witches (good and evil) and dragons. Through the years there have been many books, movies, comics and TV series that have left their mark on me. There are many fantastic characters in these stories that I would have liked to meet, but seeing as they aren't real, I can't. Right?

Recently I have discovered a new passion, and have taken to needle-felting. The wool is so soft and inviting, the colors so vivid and lively. Little by little an idea presented itself to me: Why not combine both my passions together?

And so I did.

"The Enchanted Wool" is a new home for my beloved characters. Some of the characters come from various fandoms, and some are my own inventions. I usually start a project with something specific in mind, but every once in a while I get the feeling I am not really the one in charge...

I love all my creations but have found that I especially like making the strong, smart, "kick-ass" women the sci-fi worlds have to offer. I find the contrast between the softness and flexibility of the fabric, and the strong will and hard determination of the women, very intriguing. I also believe that such ladies can be a good role-model for young boys and girls, so they are a perfect present for young kids as well as for their parents.

If you're anything like me - a geek or a sci-fi fan, you'll probably find what you are looking for here, and if there is a special character whom you'd like to order and does not yet live here - drop me a line.

Among other things I am mad about "Buffy the vampire slayer", "Firefly", "The sandman", Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, Star Wars, Avatar the last airbenbder, and many many more.

So, who is your favorite character? Who would you like to meet?

Uses and Safety

My Fantastic creations can be hung on your walls, but they would much rather be allowed to twirl and be free from all sides.

They should be kept safely indoors, guarded from nature's elements.

They are for decoration only and not for children to play with.

While they will be happy to decorate a nursery it is not advisable to hang them right over a baby's crib.

And if I can't find here what I am looking for?

I will be happy to make a felt character Just for you!

Contact me and tell me what you want, and I will involve you in the creative process as much as I can.

How do I take care of my needle creation?

First of all - handle with care.
Keep away from children and animals.
Keep them away from the elements.

Keeping the dusk away - I find that most of the time light taps on the item and huffing on it is enough to blow the dust away.

It that's not good enough try using a small vacuum - just make sure that everything is firmly attached to your sculpture. You can use a full sized vacuum, with a sock or hosiery over the wand head. Hold it on firmly in place with a rubber band.

Don’t ever use moisture with them, or the dust will stick even more to them.

If you handle your pieces a lot, be sure to wash your hands EVERY time before touching them.
