Announcement   Welcome to the fanciful world of handmade up-cycled wool dolls and puppets! I started making wool dolls, which I call Jabberwoolies, several years ago. Each one is uniquely created and styled by me, and no two dolls are alike. Quite recently, I have started creating what I call "Jabberwooly Critters"--birds, dogs, and cats which are similarly styled and dressed. Each Jabberwooly is given a unique garden-themed name as a tribute to my love of all things that grow from the ground.

I then started making hand puppets as a way to use up the scraps from the Jabberwoolies, in an effort to reduce the waste created by my endeavors as much as possible.

I use 100% recycled wool for my creations. This wool comes primarily from sweaters which have been washed, fluffed, and felted prior to use.

I hope you enjoy my shop, and if you have any questions regarding any of my products, please do not hesitate to contact me!

This item arrived in a very resonable amount of time, and my daughter LOVES him!! As soon as she saw him she smiled at him, and quickly leaned in for a kiss. The item feels well-made, and I am confident that we will have many hours of awesome play with Walden.

About

The strong women in my family were talented, resourceful, unique, apron-wearing seamstresses, tailors, furriers, cooks and garden-lovers who descended from a long tradition of people obsessed with creating.

The creative process can be a curse! Sometimes it just takes some stepping away from my tools and tables to the local library, museum, thrift shop, photo album--or just into my garden--for inspiration.

I prefer three dimensional work in fibers, textiles or paper. Wool is my latest obsession. It is such a forgiving fiber. I also try to use recycled materials as much as I can.
