Designed for ages 10 and up, these kits contain everything you need to create 2 to 5 cute little creatures that will be admired by kids and adults alike. A generous helping of soft wool, felting needles, and easy step-by-step instructions for how to make each animal are included. Kits are assembled in Seattle, WA, but the high-quality wool comes from New Zealand.
Before Woolpets were kits, they were the hobby of founder and pre-school teacher Laurie Sharp. Her animal creations were frequent guests in her classroom. The kids loved them. Before long, parents were asking where they could buy some of their own, and a business idea was born. Laurie teamed up with her husband Kevin to launch Woolpets.
Our testers found needle felting surprisingly simple to learn, enjoyable, and even called it relaxing. Who would have thought poking and molding wool with a needle until the fibers become woven into felt could yield such an adorable cast of characters. Give these kits as gifts and who knows, maybe you’ll be lucky enough to receive a hedgehog, owl, penguin, ladybug, or bumblebee Woolpet in return.
