Wool Crafting ~ Wee Little Sheep, Felted Dryer Balls, Yarn!

I have been very busy and a new little flock of sheep occupies my work room.
There are also a lot of felted wool balls popular for the dryer ( in place of fabric softener sheets ) , as cat toys, and for baby toys. Babies can chew them, they are washable, babies can throw them but won't break or hurt anything.They look great in a lovely bowl or basket just for decoration too.

And of course, there is always wool being spun into yarn around here. This is my "turkey" yarn, so called because I traded a pair of Midget White turkeys for this Romney fleece and am enjoying spinning it up. This is only my first skein of yarn from the lovely caramel & cream colored wool. If you are ever interested in any of these wool creations and I do not have any listed in my Etsy shop, just e-mail me and I can customize an order for you of felted balls, Wee Little Sheep, or even spin up some yarn for you.

Valentine Sheep & Snowballs

February is the month of love, celebrated especially on Valentine's Day. I have given my little sheep silver hearts that say "Love", but really, love is never out of season. I like these little adornments so much I am going to add silver hearts to my sheep throughout the year. These sheep can be purchased by clicking here *.
I have also been making wool balls from the fleece of my Jacob sheep. These and the wee little sheep are my biggest sellers at bazaars and can be used or displayed throughout the year. The wool balls are perfect for the dryer. Toss them in with a load of wet clothes, no fabric softener sheets needed. The wool ball will keep your laundry separated, fluffed up, and static free. Even better, they can be used over and over again. When not in use for laundry, they also make great cat or baby toys, and even look good placed in a basket or bowl on the table.To purchase these click here * .

Since the storm last month I have been busy cleaning up outside, we have a years' worth of cleaning for all the destruction the ice storm left behind. This leaves me little time indoors, but I spend all my spare time spinning wool into yarn, making more little sheep , weaving and locker-hooking rugs, and having fun crafting new items the wool inspires. Thank-you again for taking a few moments to view my Spotted Sheep Shop !
