Unfortunately I don't have a picture at the moment. I got too excited to wrap my Christmas gift. I sent a picture of my moms dog to be replicated into a wool pot and I love it! Its always nice to give a personal touch. I think if you are looking for a creative way to give a plant, this is it. I will be ordering more in the future. Great service.

I really like these bowls and feel the quality of the felt is superior to other felt bowls I have purchased.

About

A rainbow dream....

Welcome to the Yarn Kitchen, we are a family studio, always busy, always experimenting with something different.

We are a family of four + the grand mother and everyone is playing a role, designing, marketing, modelling, shipping and mostly DREAMING!

We like to play with felt, all together around a large table with wool and soapy water to give home to mother earth treasures, gnomes and fairies around in the house.

We like to give materials and things a second chance and show to our children that things can have a second life, often so different from the first one.

I'm a cooker (also a professional chef even if I don't work in a restaurant ...actually...) and this is a strong pattern behind the Yarn Kitchen, I like to play with ingredients, you will find a rainbow of tasty meal around, always differents and always with a lot of love ;-).

Think about our homestudio as a magpie's nest, full of colors and treasures that we would like to share with you.

When you stop by and decide to buy from us at the Yarn Kitchen, you are growing our dream, dream of producing something fairly, dream of using sustainable material and dream of spreading a little rainbow around in the world :-)

We like custom order, peek inside our shop just to say hallo and chat a little together, we are here!!

Ciao Stella

Frequently asked questions

Shipping

I use INTERNATIONAL PRIORITY MAIL for shipping. This is NOT TRACKED but affordable, fast and reliable.

Usally the shipment takes:

3/4 working days in EUROPE
5/6 working days in the USA
7/8 working days in AUSTRALIA and the FAR EAST

I can't control the process and sometimes a single shipment take more because it takes the wrong way or remain at custom.

About the OCTOPUS

The octopus is for AIR PLANTS only.

TILLANDSIA is a tropical plant that doesn't need soil to grow as it absorbs nutrients from the leaves.

Holding air plant upside down is healthy for the plant because it fears humidity at the base after watering.

The plant I use in particular is a Tillandsia Caput medusae that is one of my preferred.

When the air is too dry you can spray the leaves and sometimes take it out and give a plain splash for a quarter of hour or so and then place back in the octopus head :-)

The plant is secured to the felt pod by a thread that I leave inside.

Simply wrap around the plant like a sort of sling and that is sufficient to hold the plant securely inside.

Planters size

The planters (animal planters, pod planters, hanging planters) are small (and really cute), intended for little succulents contained in a 2" (5cm) little plastic pot.

The size is clearly indicated in each listing, If you need more informations feel free to write to me for more details.

Care instructions

The planters are not lined.

Felt is waterproof to a certain extent. It means that if some water occasionally spills the felt doen't absorb it, but it is better to remove and dry the felt because it is biodegradable and can be attached by mold.

I use my planters along with the little plastic pot that comes from the nursery. During the hot season I take the pot out and giv a good splash to mu plants, then I replace them after few minutes.

Felt planters are best paired with low maintenance plants like cactus and succulents.

If you need more informations feel free to write to me for more details :-)

Where can I buy the right plant?

SUCCULENTS
I'm a succulent lover and I buy my plants directly from the nursery or online.

There are a lot of sellers here on etsy, on ebay and also at local sellers.

For the USA I have partnered with Linda from Succulent oasis and you can find a listing just perfect for my planters

AIR PLANTS
I got my air plant in Europe (usually from Till Herba Caeli on etsy from Berlin)

If you are in the USA you can find them trough etsy (for example www.etsy.com/shop/AirPlantShopCom) or on ebay where you can find really a lot (much more than in Europe actually).

If you need more informations feel free to write to me for more details :-)
