Needle-Felting Natural Toys
These felt balls (to the right) are needle-felted from beautifully soft, 100% wool roving. They are colorful, safe, and fun to play with indoors. They are the perfect size for small hands, and easy to catch and throw.
Felt balls also:
- make great cat toys
- can be easily juggled
- make a light-weight bowling ball
- teach children about the colors of the rainbow
- are natural and safe to play with (no risk of lead!)
Each felt ball is approximately 3 1/2" (8.5 cm) in diameter; and 10 1/2" (26.5 cm) in circumference. The core is clean roving that was from one of the sheep I raised at Harvest Moon's organic farm. The outer layer is wool roving that has been hand-dyed with natural dyes.
Some of the wool balls are a single color…while others use roving that have a lovely blend of shades and specks of vibrant colors.
If you're interested in purchasing a felt ball (or a whole collection of them), please visit Harvest Moon by Hand.
