About

With my first baby, I decided early on that I would not buy plastic toys. I love handmade crafts. I enjoy sewing. For years, I've been sewing Wool Food for my children and now they are available for others to enjoy!

The pieces that make up each Wool Food item are lovingly hand cut and hand stitched by me. The designs are mostly my own, made to look realistic but fun. My sewing production happens daily in my smoke-free, pet-free and children-ful home located in the Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada. 

Wool Food is a great addition to your child's play kitchen or for a play grocery market or farmer's market. These hand sewn felt food provide a colourful and soft tactile element to your child's imaginative play. 

Not only do children love playing with them, but my buyers now include adults who use Wool Food for home decor, home staging and fall or Christmas decorations.

100% Wool Felt

All my felt food are hand stitched using 100% wool felt and stuffed with poly batting and felt scrap pieces. Wool felt is a natural, stronger, higher quality felt, and resistant to pilling.  

Since each item is hand stitched, each item may vary slightly from each other in size and shape, just like real fruit and vegetables! Your purchased item may also vary slightly in colour from the online photos.

Why 100% wool felt?

Ecological and Renewable
Wool felt is both ecologically and animal friendly. It is a natural and sustainable resource.

Highly Durable  
Wool Felt is highly resilient, retaining its strength and unique properties for decades.Therefore it will not pill and is highly durable after many years of use.

Resists Soiling  
The outer layer of the wool fiber has a thin protective wax-like film, which acts as a raincoat, enabling wool to shed droplets of liquids without wetting the fabric. Spill a liquid on a horizontal wool surface and you have time to mop it up before it stains the fabric.

Flame Retardant  
Because wool contains moisture in each fiber, it resists flame without chemical treatment. Instead of burning freely when touched by flame, wool chars and stops burning when it is removed from the source of fire. Wool is self-extinguishing. It will not support combustion; this is why wool blankets are recommended for use in extinguishing small fires.

Anti-bacterial  
Wool fibers have a high concentration of fatty acids which keeps wool fabric from mildewing or retaining odours.

Hypoallergenic  
Wool felt is hypoallergenic. Since wool is composed of the same proteins as human hair and fingernails it is rare that someone has an allergy to wool. Because wool is both slow to absorb moisture and is made from interlocked fibers that allow air flow, dust mites avoid wool.

In addition, the wool felt that is used is Oeko-Tex 100 or EN71 certified so that the felt is safe for children.

Safety

Mobirise

Please remember that these are play food and so children may pretend to eat them! Some of the felt food are small enough to fit inside a child's mouth. While I try my best to sew all pieces securely, I can not guarantee the safety of your felt food during playtime.

Please ensure that your children play responsibly. Not recommended for age 3 and under.
