ManeechkasFelties

Needle felted creations made of 100% wool.

Portland, Maine 60 Sales On Etsy since 2013

5 out of 5 stars (18)

Announcement   VACATION NOTICE: ManeechkasFelties will be on vacation March 15-26, 2019. Orders placed after March 12th will be shipped on the first week of April. Thank you!

WELCOME NOTE:
The creations you find in the shop are one-of-a-kind toys, educational materials, holiday ornaments, Easter decorations, and jewelry -- all handmade by me through a needle-felting process in which loose wool is shaped by stabbing a barbed needle repeatedly until it mattes together into solid felt. Each piece takes anywhere from 15 minutes (for simpler designs) to several hours to make.

ABOUT WOOL:
I process wool core myself which I procure from an organic farm in Maine. After skirting the fleece, it goes through a handwash process that takes a soak, several rinses, and 3-7 days to air dry; and then a hand brush. This is the fleece I use for batting/core. I buy dyed roving from a local fiber shop in Portland, ME, as well as a small fiber company in New Hampshire that works with small pastoral communities and farms around the world. I work with over 100 colors of dyed wool.

MISCELLANEOUS:
The items listed in my Etsy shop are just a small sample of my work. For a fuller scope of designs I create regularly, please visit my Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/fuzzylovies/ I also welcome custom orders for your own special 3D felted objects or simply different sizes or colors of the items listed in my Esty shop.

By buying FuzzyLovies, you not only support my work and small businesses, but you also contribute to the sustainability of our planet.

It is about the daily choices that make our lives meaningful.

Yours sincerely,
~ Mia

P.S. To customers from the Greater Portland area (Maine) -- you can save on shipping costs by picking up your orders from me in Portland. Please contact me BEFORE placing your order through Etsy to get the shipping costs waived.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Colors, size, props, hairstyles, or other attributes can be customized for items listed in my shop. Please send me an email and supporting photos with your request.

If you'd like an item to be made from a photo you have, but don't see it in my shop, please send me your request along with the photo(s) and details such as budget, color, size, and any other pertinent information.

There is no fee for a custom color. However, an additional fee may occur depending on whether extra material or time needed, or whether shipping costs may increase. Please note that custom orders may take longer to complete, but not always so.

I will communicate any additional costs and other details, and seek your approval prior to start of your custom order.

Sizing details

All sizing/dimensions (in inches) are indicated in description for each item sold in my shop.

It is each customer's responsibility to ensure the item fits his/her expectations. Items cannot be exchanged due to the reasons of sizing, unless the ordered items haven't been shipped.

If you wish to order smaller or larger items than what's offered in my shop, please email me for a custom order.

Care instructions

Most of the toys have no-stitch construction, which can be pulled apart with strong force. There are several items (such as eggs, balls, etc) that can withstand robust play. It is noted in the "Uses" part of an item's description if a toy is intended for robust play.

Wash is not recommended. Instead, wipe stained areas with a wet cloth. It's noted in an item's description if it's hand-washable. Air dry is recommended after hand-washing. Balls, eggs or other solid-shaped items can be put in a dryer, but please keep in mind that they may shrink.

Please feel free to email me any questions regarding care for your fuzzy lovie.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each item is packaged for safe shipment. If your fuzzy lovie arrives damaged, please let me know within 3 days of the delivery.

All fuzzy lovies are wrapped in colorful tissue paper. A gift note/card can be included free of charge. Please email me a message you'd like to have on the card.

Cancellation Policy

In order to ensure that my customers always receive a freshly made and unused item, returns or exchanges are not possible. Exceptions for exchanges can be made. Requests will be viewed on case by case basis. Please contact me with any questions prior to placing your order.
