Announcement   Demand is currently very high and so the turnaround time for sculptures is around 4 weeks. Please order in plenty of time to avoid disappointment



Welcome to Ben Mcfuzzylugs, home of needle felted cat dog and pet sculptures and the famous SPLAT felt animal bookmarks. All handmade for you on the west coast of Scotland in my pet loving smoke free home.

I care deeply about animal cruelty and my core fibre is usually Whitefaced Woodland wool from UK sheep. In the UK it is illegal for sheep to be mulesed. For the widest matches of colours I often use merino fibres - my merino is sourced from non-mulesed flocks From South America.
If you dont want to use sheeps fleece at all I also have a supply of Alpaca fibre which comes from stunning farm in the Middlands of England. I have actually visitied the farm and the Alpaca are kept in beautiful hillside fields, they are cared for and not slaughtered, when they do pass away they are given an autopsy by the vets. There is no organic standard for Alpaca at the moment in the UK but as the hillside runs to a reservoir for human drinking water there is great care put into what is put on the ground or used on the Alpacas
The fibre is natural, not dyed so I am limited in the colours I can use in the sculptures. If you would like a custom sculpture in Alpaca fibre please contact me.

It is also possible to create sculptures in different fibres like silky bamboo or even recycled plastic - please contact me if you are interested in something like this

First time Etsy buyer and I have to say, best purchase EVER!! The attention to detail Pam puts into her craft is exquisite! My boyfriend absolutely loves his custom Warcraft giraffe and it’s now placed proudly beside his computer for when he plays. 10 out of 10 will buy from her shop again!

About

Dog lover does art

My family have always been arty - I was the science on
Then one day in a craft store a needle felting book fell off the shelf infront of me
I fell in love
The rest is history

well almost
Once I started friends asked for me to make sculptures for them and suggested I should start a shop
I struggled for a name so called the shop after my muse, my first ever dog, little Ben McFuzzylugs

Prices vary in my store based on the time it takes to produce an item. As I have improved at my craft I add more and more details and peices actually take longer to make. The older peices are still perfectly well made just not up to the standard of peices I make now (and future peices will be even better!) So prices will be lower
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices


Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Pam Duthie, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at pamduthie [!at] hotmail.com

Care instructions

Do not wash or brush your fuzzylugs sculptures, gently move hairs into place with your fingers or something blunt like a darning needle. If really needed trim away flyaways. Do not use glue or any chemicals on your item. Keep away from pets as the sheeps wool can be irresistible :)

Sizing details

Sizes vary slightly as this is a handmade product with no pattern but small size is 3-4 inches, medium around 5 inches and large is about 7 inches
