Catnip Felt Fish

Made from recycled wool sweaters, these Cat Fish are sure to please even the most finicky of kitties. The colors vary depending on the wool sweaters used. Fish are stuffed with organic Canadian catnip, and range in length from 10-12 inches. A fun decorative yarn is stitched around the fish. Your cat will be the envy of her/his friends in the neighborhood. While kitty naps, toss the fish in the freezer to freshen up the catnip.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

I am involved in the ancient art of needle-felting.  All my items are made of pure wool.  To make a necklace, I begin with a small tuft of wool and begin to felt it on a foam pad with a wooden handled needle.  I keep poking the felt until I form a small bead.  I continue to felt the bead until it is dense.   When the bead is finished, I then take other pieces of colored wool, and needle into the bead a design.  

Each bead is individually made and then designed.  My necklaces have as many as 11 beads, but I also make necklaces with a single wool bead.  I string my necklaces on sterling silver or round leather cord.  I use sterling silver or vermeil toggle clasps.  My purses and handbags are done the same way, except with large amounts of wool layered 5 times to make the piece well-built and strong.

I also use felt punches which have 10-12 needles per punch to felt the wool.  After the piece is finished, I then needle-felt a design into the finished product.  I then "wet" felt the whole piece to make the wool dense.  All purses and handbags are lined and have either a zipper or snap closure.
