My hand felted pods and doorstops have escaped from Etsy! (ok not entirely) but they do have a day pass...
I've been getting more and more disgruntled that Etsy has moved so far from its original ethos of handmade and vintage and now not only doesn't it discourage mass produced items - it seems to be positively encouraging them and making life impossible for us truly small scale producers.
So I have finally got around to putting some time into my own website and giving my pods a new home.
My doorstops are hand (wet) felted in one piece from pure Shetland wool. I use a neutral background colour (usually grey or fawn) then add highlights in different tones. Each doorstop has 6 layers of wool fibre so is really thick and strong. Taking over 2.5 hours to make each one, they are pretty labour intensive (and certainly aren't going to make my fortune)...but those who have bought them absolutely adore them. One customer told me 'I didn't think it was possible to get excited about a doorstop...well I was wrong!' how lovely is that?
