Welcome to the ‘Fit to be loved’ website! I hope you enjoy browsing through the pages and keep coming back for more.
‘Fit to be loved’ animals are one of a kind and lovingly handmade through the art of needle felting. Each detailed and lifelike animal sculpture can take many hours of love and labour.
To ensure they are of the highest quality, all animals are made with carefully selected wools that are ethically sourced and beautifully textured. I mainly use corriedale as a core wool and merino wools over the top. I choose and blend colours to get just the right tones to suit the animal. The wools are soft to touch, and I layer and trim them in such a way to resemble natural animal fur.
Sometimes sculptures will have a wire armature inside for stability and structure.
Each animal is created to be as realistic as possible whilst also being full of soul, character and cuteness.
Once finished I write a short blog post about them here on my website and some will go up for sale in my Etsy shop.
