Announcement   Thank you very much for coming to my shop!

Almost all of my work leans towards the whimsical hence the name. I like my creations to make me smile after I have designed them and I hope they do the
same for you. Please read below and check out my list of shows that I attend.

Everything you see on this site is handmade

Everything you see on this site is handmade completely by myself along with help from my daughters, Kristen and Meghan and my wonderful sister, Madeline. Each item pictured on this site is a representation of that item. Each piece is created as closely to what you see in that picture and possible.

Thank you for coming and visiting my little woolie store.

I have been in business for over 29 years now under the name of The Ram's Horn Connection. Whimsical Woolies is the name for my Etsy store.


Each piece I design is made from wire as a base and wool as the body. I wrap the wool over the wire to create the main body of each creation and then add
needle felting technique to acquire the features I desire for ears, face, etc. Since the body is made of wire they are POSEABLE!


My work has been featured in several national magazines over the years such as Country Living, Country Home, Traditional Home, Wild Fiber, Domino Magazine and Early American Life and Art Doll Quarterly.

Over the years several pieces of my work have ended up in several museums around the country also.

Thank you so much and enjoy shopping and come back often because I am constantly adding new items!

About

The Ram's Horn Connection and Whimsical Woolies

It all started with my mother, Eveylyn Roberts, over 35 years ago. She started making little woolie sheep to display the wool that she used for making her shawls, coats, etc. They sold very well at Yankee Peddler Show in Canal Fulton, OH and so my sisters and myself started making them. Since I lived almost 5 hours away I began my own division of the woolie making team, The Ram's Horn Connection.

My husband and I just recently bought a farm outside of Pittsburgh and plan to have goats and chickens next year on the farm. We are very excited to have this wonderful place and looking forward to many days and years enjoying it with family and friends.

Thank you for visiting my shop! I pride myself on my workmanship on each and every item that I sell. If you are not happy with any purchase please let me know. I will try my best to rectify it.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Your business is always welcomed but in fairness to those who order any product or products from me you need to understand this. An order is not placed until payment is made. As soon as payment is made that is when I have received the order.
Shipping
I try to ship each order in a timely manner. If I feel that I need to have more time to accomplish an order I will let you know. Sometimes this will happen if I am away from my work desk, if I am out of a certain component that I need to complete an order, or the amount of orders that have come in are very heavy and I need more time. IMPORTANT...because of issues in this day and age with packages being stolen off of porches...once package has shipped and it has been delivered to the address given by customer, I am no longer responsible for package. So please make sure that you have someone standing by once I have emailed you that the package has shipped to retrieve package.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with what you have received I will accept returns as long as the return is within 10 days. When I receive the package and if there is no wear or tear on the product I will issue a full refund for the product only.
