Item arrived quickly and was packaged beautifully. I bought it as a 7th Anniversary (wool / cooper) gift for my other half. Loved the surprise little Hungarian chocolate treats too. Perfect! He loves them and I think they are so cute. Can't wait to display them on the wall. Vendor kept me in the loop throughout and helped when I had a payment query. Very helpful.

About

Woolinka is the home to needle felted creations, one of a kind wool monsters and other figurines. Each of the soft sculptures, brooches and felted ornaments are designed and lovingly handcrafted by me. They are made from high-quality wool in a smoke- and pet free environment.

How it all began…

When I first met needle felting it captivated me instantly. I was completely bewitched by the technique and wool itself. I found that felting wool with needles gives you endless possibilities to experiment, and allows you to follow your imagination without much compromise. I particularly love the almost hypnotic state the silent repetitive movements of the needle creates as it shapes the wool. For me it is this meditative state of mind when the magic happens. Raw wool slowly starts to take form, a creature peeks out of the wool fibers to show itself.

Wool is a remarkable material – light, airy and soft in its unworked form and pretty firm, dense and dureable when turned into a sculpture. I enjoy the great variety of colours, it makes my imagination go wild.

The first two woolinka monsters – a couple – were poked to life some years ago, as an anniversary gift for my husband. I just fell in love with them and soon more and more were born.
They are playful and whimsical, funny and heartwarming. Each of them are unique and one of a kind; each of them has soul and their own personality. Although they are kind and friendly, most of them are rather proud of their mesmerizing look and pretty bums. They like sitting on bookshelves, looking around from kitchen tables, but most of all, they love to belong to someone as a true friend.

It gives me great joy and fun to create these wool characters and my goal is to send that joy and fun to your home and heart as well. Enjoy the woolinkas, let them bring smile on your faces.
