ABOUT ME:

Welcome to Woolnimals!

I currently live in St. Albans, Vermont with my husband and our three cats. I have a wonderful art studio filled with inspiring art by other Etsy artists and lots of different colors of wool. I dabble in painting, sculpture, and jewelry making, but needle felting is my true passion. You can probably tell I love animals as well. I take great time and pride in creating my wool sculptures - each is unique and a work of art unto itself. The average animal takes about 2-3 hours to complete, and I accomplish the fine details using a range of different sized felting needles - giving my creations a special touch. Each purchase is gift wrapped and shipped super securely. I love opening packages and I aim to make my shipments a delight to open.

ABOUT NEEDLE FELTING:

Needle felting is a process by which natural (often dyed) wool fibers are felted (or knotted) together with barbed needles. Beginning with a ball of wool, the felter will repeatedly stab or poke the wool until the fibers knot together and become firmer. Eventually a shape forms, and the more you poke one area, the more condensed the wool gets. There are various gauges of needles, and the finer the gauge, the smoother the item you're felting becomes. I use many different gauges to achieve smooth lines. A lot of my creatures take on their own personalities as I work with the wool; much like any sculptor, I must meet the medium halfway. I would love to explain more through convos if you have any questions!
