Announcement   Why do you love animals? This is an important question. Our answers to this question hold a key to changing how we perceive and protect our planet and its biodiversity. I believe that finding a connection with animals and the natural world will foster an innate stewardship. Our deep love for them, for whatever reason, urges us toward protecting their habitats and rights. As an artist, I am to weave compassion for and connection to other species. I hope to capture what awes us about the wild kingdom, to create a quiet magic that may bring us back to our own selves and sense of place. Above all, I hope that in our appreciation for animals we are inspired to fight for their safety, health, and protected abundance on this earth.


💕 Next Shop Update: To Be Determined
💕 Kindred Species is updated with lovely little creatures about once per month. Follow me on

come.
💕 I am not currently accepting customs and will not for the foreseeable future.

So great! The little pig was a valentines gift for my mom- she squealed when she opened it! It really is so well made and adorable!

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.
