About

My Little Wool Menagerie

Woolnimals began on the tail end of a thread. I had been knitting a scarf and ran out of yarn. On a whim, I visited a local fiber store looking for new and interesting yarn, and there among all the beautiful colors and textures was a needle felting kit: Backyard Birds.

I made one bluebird and was hooked. Nearly ten years and several hundred creatures later, I am still fabulously in love with felting. I adore animals and it's as much a surprise to me as anyone else to see the personality and soul of the creature emerge from a ball of wool. I constantly surprise and delight myself.

I have honed my technique and swear by my felting needles, wool supplier, and, of course, Etsy. I love talking about felting to anyone looking to learn how to do it. It's easy, fun, and very zen. Just watch your fingers....there's nothing quite like a felting needle in the thumb.
