The stoneware lint feeders are much sturdier than the raku ones - they can live outdoors year round in most climates and don't give one hoot (see what I did there?) about rain or sun.
Designed to hang on a wall, eave, post or tree trunk by a nail or screw.

Its always seemed a bit of a waste to me to just toss the lint from our dryer into the trash.

Problem solved with this little lint feeder! Hang it on an exterior wall, fence post, tree or anywhere birds gather in spring, and let the birds feather their nests with your dryer lint!

Stoneware clay is wheel thrown and embellished, then glazed and single fired to 2350 degrees f in a mild reduction atmosphere over about 10 hours.
Your Lint Feeder will come pre-loaded with premium grade alpaca shearings to get you started!
It measures about 4 inches across and 3" deep.
Unglazed perch provides contrast and good grippiness for birds.

I'd like to caution you NOT to use lint from clothes dried with a dryer sheet, as its not good for birdies!
Its also best if you don't use dryer lint until after your area's rainy season is done, as wet lint can compromise the integrity of a nest's structure.

Other materials you may want to consider in your Lint Feeder are:
- Yarn or string—cut into 4- to 8-inch pieces
- Human or animal hair (especially horse hair) (use short lengths—no longer than 4-6 inches long)
- Pet fur (Never use fur from pets that received flea or tick treatments)
- Sheep's wool
- Feathers
- Plant fluff or down (e.g. cattail fluff, cottonwood down)
- Kapok, cotton batting, or other stuffing material
