Beautifully hand-felted wool is hand sewn into a clouds and rainbow raindrops mobile. This mobile of rainbow raindrops is perfect above a crib, above a toddler bed, in a preschool or kindergarten classroom or homeschool space or in a child’s playroom or play space. The raindrops and cloud are made of 100% New Zealand wool dyed in colors that are completely Azo-free.
The mobile hangs about 19 inches and should be kept well out of reach of babies and children.
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 age-old, time-consuming process of bonding fibers together. This is a physical job where the artisans 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 or sewn into many complex shapes and designs. The end results are colorful, one-of-a-kind textiles that are stunning to behold.
