  • size: 30 x 40 cm.
  • backside grey.
  • filled with ca. 200 gr. Finnish sheep wool.
  • felt: 100% Finnish sheep wool (undyed, shades are natural sheep wool shades).
  • this product is made-to-order, production time between 4-8 weekdays.
  • pure natural.
  • handmade in Finland, Lapland, Enontekiö.

 

The cushions are made from Finnish sheep wool which I felt by hand. Since every product is handmade, each product is unique.

 

The shades of the felt are undyed natural sheep wool shades. Due to the nature of natural fibre, colours may vary slightly and may contain some traces of vegetable matter.

 

I weave the woollen decorative band by hand, using the Sámi band weaving technique. The woven bands, called “pirtanauha” were traditionally used as shoelaces, belts, etc. This technique is plain and simple and only uses a heddle, shuttle and a back-strap.

 

Please note that this product is not in storage but is made-to-order. Production will take about 4-8 weekdays.

 

I advise not to wash the product, cleaning can be done by using a damp cloth, but do not rub.
