Welcome to My Woolen Friends - now let's spread some joy!
They story about how My Woolen Friends came to exist is simple, yet purely accidental. It was February 2020 and I was randomly scrolling through social media when I came across an article with photos of these extremely sweet and joyful woolen creatures. That was the first time I have heard about needle felting. A week later, I had my starter kit ready to go and so I embarked on a journey filled with joy and happiness.
Because I did not really know what to call them in the beginning, I was referring to my little creations as “my woolen friends” – “woolen” because they are all made out of wool and “friends” because that’s how I felt about them. The name felt authentic and very fitting from the very beginning, so it stuck!
Style wise, I’m still very much in the process of finding and developing my very own style. Surely, I started out by following online tutorials in the very beginning, but by now I am happy to claim most of the designs as my very own!
Even if needle felting is mostly a hobby for me, that doesn’t change how seriously I’m taking it. From the very first second, needle felting has been a constant well of positivity for me; my general well-being has changed so much for the better ever since I pick up on this craft. It is very important to me, that I preserve and protect this precious source, which is why I will only put up for sale the items that I enjoy creating. It is important to me, that I enjoy the process of creating these items, because if I don’t, it will surely reflect in the final product. In other words, I won’t be taking any customized orders, so only the items on display will be available for purchase. I truly hope you understand the motivation behind this decision.
Thank you for you interest and support!

I am a self-taught needle felter who felt fast and hard in love with the art of needle felting. I love creating little woolen friends and spread the joy! I work with wool sourced from small businesses or family businesses in Europe.
