Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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

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.

Wool Food was originally created for children. They are great for teaching children about food, colours, counting, eating etc. Made of 100% wool felt, these products are naturally durable and perfect for playing. Many primary teachers have boughts these for their class. If your child has a play kitchen, fill it up with Wool Food!

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.

The market for Wool Food has expanded now to include home decor, home staging and fall or Christmas decorations. Many interior decorators have approached my market table, excited to buy a colourful grouping of fruit or berries to help brighten up a corner of a kitchen. Pumpkins also make for great fall decor and the Christmas cookies and gingerbread cookies can be used to decorate the Christmas tree.

I used different sized boxes to accomodate the size of your order. But generally, most orders should fit within the flat shipping rate that I use.
