These are so cute and I really love the earthy natural colors. They are very useful and pretty to set around your home but I mostly put special things in them. 2 of these are round shaped and one is rectangular so they are very interesting too. This is my 3rd set! I love them! :)

Okay, these "Little Honey Bear" slippers are just adorable. If you have a little one somewhere in your life these are absolutely scrumptious. They are bright, sweet and very warm feeling for little feet. I LOVE these colors, they are really cute together in the stripes. They are VERY well made and thick and the ties at the top can adjust around ankles. The bear ornaments and little seed beads are super cute. I bought these for my friends little girl. She looks so cute in them and her mom loves them! Really lovely knitted slippers! :)

This is very beautifully made cord that I plan to use in a special craft project. The color is very pretty and it is very well made. I love so much that it is cruelty free and animal friendly! I'm so glad I got this! :)

These are the cutest things ever! They each have their own personality and are so adorable! They make me laugh and smile every time I see them. I like to arrange them differently now and then and mostly keep them nestled in one of the wool bowls from this shop although they could also be used as hanging decorations as they have little loops at the top. I really wanted to add some photos I took of them but can't figure out how to add the photos here. The colors are so pretty too. Really woodsy and enchanted looking handsome creatures. I'm sure I will give them special names as they are each so unique. What fun, sweet things! I really needed these but didn't know it until they were here all looking at me with their froggy faces. LOVE these! :)

Oh my gosh, let me start by saying that I am madly in love with this guy. Arthos is a calm and soulful creature who I count as a friend. My cat would like to cuddle him too but knows to only give him a respectful rub. I've been eyeing this guy in the store for so long & I am SO happy he is sitting here with me now as he never ceases to cheer me up. :) He's absolutely gorgeous & super soft and cuddly. Love love love him.:) ♥

I am almost speechless at the beauty of this bag. It is intricately made and so cheerful! You can feel the happy vibes just looking at it but it feels lovely and soft yet strong too. I just adore it! I have gotten many compliments when I've been out too! Gorgeous! (This is my second bag from this lovely seller!)

I now have 2 pairs of these and I love them. Especially when I am sick or feel a chill or just need some comfort they warm me up instantly. However they also breathe so are very comfortable. The story of the special way they are made just makes them even more lovely to wear.

About

Felting in a hot month of July?

I always loved knitting sweaters in winter, but who buys wool in a very hot summer? In July 2010 I saw some special wool yarn for felting at an unbeatable price & just couldn't resist. I never felted before, but then I crocheted a little cat, felted it & filled it with lavender blossoms from my garden. For lavender at least it was just the right season.
Suddenly there were 2 cats, 3...more & more. Autumn came & a first bag. Winter & some slippers. And then many many necklaces. What to do with all of these?
So then my shop "FILZKATZE" (The Felting Cat) was born.
In 2011 I started natural dyeing from plants.
My Mum Lilo also got infected by the felting virus & started making wonderful bags & bowls that I also sell in my shop.

As I care a lot about human, environment & animal welfare, my new products are made with either natural or plant dyed "Vegetarian Wool" from sheep that live in animal sanctuaries or as "landscape managers" & are not butchered.
Sometimes I also use Tussah Silk (wild silk) & Ahimsa Silk (Peace Silk/non violent silk) being obtained without killing the silk worms.
I love all animal & eco friendly materials.
Working with them makes me feel even happier with my hobby & hopefully many people more.

My cat Reesha (Arabic for "feather") is my inspiration, model & tester.
