100% wool felt is hand-dyed with foraged and farmed materials and handmade into bows on barrettes

The felt for these children’s bows are wet felted wool from Navajo Churro sheep living on a small 8 acre California farm in Escondido outside of San Diego. The sheep share the farm with another small group of alpaca. Both are adapted to the hot, dry climate of the area and do exceptionally well in that environment. 

The textile artist who created these for us used the wool she sheared from her own small flock of sheep to create the felt, which she dyed using foraged native plant parts.

The yellow bow was dyed using California Sage Shrub (Artemesia california), a native shrub in her region.  The darker brownish-pink bow was dyed using avocado skins and pits.

Following this, she hand cut, folded and sewed the bows to the barrette so as not to untie.

We love that these are from a small farm using environmentally sound practices and that we are supporting her small business. And, they look adorable in children’s hair.

The bows are also 100% biodegradable at their end of life.
