The perfect eco-friendly felted wool ornament for the greyhound lover! This handmade ornament is intricately detailed and lovingly crafted by mother and sister artisans in Nepal. Eco-friendly wool felt. Measures approximately 5 inches tall. Fair Trade.

The Art of Felting: The first step to creating these beautiful felt pieces begins with gathering some of the world’s finest sheep’s wool from New Zealand. Making felted wool is an ages-old, time-consuming process of bonding fabric with fiber. This is a physical job where the artisan’s scrub, rub, roll and rinse the wool again and again with soapy water. Once the wool is bound into a sheet and the desired thickness is complete, the felt is laid out to dry. From there, the felt wool is cut and re-worked into many complex shapes and designs. The many sheets of wool might merge several colors to create patterns and layers. This takes a well-trained, talented artisan and is a true labor of love. The end results are colorful, one-of-a-kind ornaments that make the perfect addition to any holiday collection.
