Hand-felted Bird Nesting Balls

These wet-felted hanging bird homes begin as raw fleece from our alpacas, combined with natural fibre and embellishments. Water, agitation, and soap shrink the fibre and lock it together to create a three-dimensional vessel. In the photo, bird nesting balls are shown in order from left to right: light pink, blue, white/pink, brown/blue. In-Store Only.

Do not put alpaca in hot water, agitate it, or dry in a dryer or on a heat source.

Soak in room temperature water with gentle detergent or shampoo for 30 minutes, rinse, gently squeeze away excess water, and lay flat to dry.

Wipe soiled area with a damp cloth free from soap, and allow it to air dry. Gently brush fur when dry and shake to fluff.
