Needle-Felted Animals, Mobiles and Pet Portraits

I love all my Fiber Friends and so does Pocket!
Pocket is always nearby to be my inspiration, anatomical reference and final judge of my progress.
Break time from the studio is spent on our farm, caring for the pastured animals and enjoying the Oregon views.

Illustration inspired, Corgi approved.

Fiber Friends was founded in 2012 and has been committed to supporting the animals that inspire us since the beginning.

​On 17 acres at the foothills of Oregon's coastal range, Miranda Rommel (published illustrator, novice handspinner/knitter, animal lover and math-challenged entrepreneur) carefully crafts each of her tiny Fiber Friends using locally grown wool and wraps them in sustainable packaging. Fiber Friends are a blend of her illustrative style and the realistic portrayal of her clients' pets or the animals found on and around her farm. Using traditional hand cards, Miranda blends natural and dyed wools to match each client's coat color and relies on good photography from their human stewards as reference to get all the details down perfectly.

Fiber Friends was founded in 2012 soon after Miranda attempted felting her very first Corgi as a Valentine's gift to her husband. The resultant ball of loosely felted orange and white wool wasn't much to look at. Luckily she persevered and continued her study in felt until she achieved their current state of adorable awesomeness.

Miranda is inspired by nature, Tasha Tudor, The Far Side, Maple Town, Calvin and Hobbes and most of all her Corgi, Pocket (assistant, anatomical reference, muse and doorbell.) Miranda and Pocket spend their days tending to their domestic rabbits, poultry and other happy livestock, cultivating the soil, breathing fresh air and spending long hours in the Fiber Friends studio seeking perfection in every felted creation, right down to the pads on their paws.

We love animals AND the environment: All our packaging and invoices are printed on 100% recycled paper and your purchase is shipped via the USPS with biodegradable packing peanuts in recycled content boxes.
