We're decking the farmhouse with this lovely felted wool ball garland this year. It is filled with the farmhouse style we love and is perfectly suited for stringing on my antique hutch in the dining room, the mantel in our family room, an over the door of the pantry.

We'll be creating these pretty garlands all year long inspired by the holidays, the seasons, and pretty color combinations we love. They'll be brightening up the farmhouse and are sure to be seen in the photos we share with you on our blog, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. When the holidays arrive, we'll be using them on our holiday trees, mantel, wreaths, an wrapped around a big present for an extra bit of texture and color.

We're making these garlands in 4', 6', 12', and 18' lengths to fit a variety of uses. The length measurement is the actual length of the cotton cording used to string the pretty wool balls on. We're using a combination of 2.5 cm (1 inch) and 2.0 cm (0.78 inch) wool felted balls to create our garlands.

This listing is for a garland with 24 wool balls strung onto a 6 foot long length of cording. The color combination is perfect for Valentine's Day!

Each end of the cording has a small loop for hanging. The wool balls are hand strung and are movable and adjustable along the cording. You can easily move them to display them in groups of a few balls together or space them approximately 3 inches apart as individual balls to stretch from end to end of the cording. If you position the 24 balls so that they are a continuous group, they measure between 21 and 24 inches long.

We are making each garland right here at our farmhouse using 100% wool felted balls. My daughter and I have made our own felted wool balls from roving in years past, but we have decided to purchase these balls in order to offer a broader range of colors and to support a great cause.

 The wool balls are crafted from 100% natural wool. They are eco-friendly, biodegradable, and handmade. We are purchasing the wool balls from a cooperative that employs women in Nepal who are trying to become financially independent, often as they leave abusive relationships. They are paid a fair trade wage and work in safe and supportive environments to create these wool balls by hand. We're paying a bit of a premium on these little wool gems, but we're happy to support the cause and the women who craft them by hand. 

As these balls are crafted from 100% natural wool, there are slight variations in color, size, and shape. Much like our handmade fabric baskets, trivets, and saucers, no two are exactly alike. We think that makes them more beautiful. The lighter colors may display tiny tan and brown flecks from the natural wool used to create them.

We'll also be making these garlands to order for you. We have a rainbow of sixty beautiful colors here at the farmhouse and several colors of cotton cording. You can choose the length and color of cording, number of felted wool balls, and colors we use to create something that is just perfect for your home.  Send us a message and we'll work with you to create something truly unique and perfect for you!

Materials

Prewashed fabric, cording, thread

Our Styles and Sizes

All of our coiled fabric pieces are made by hand here at 1840 Farm.  Each fabric strip is torn by hand before being combined with other complimentary fabrics and then wrapped around a length of cording, joining the fabrics as we go.  The fabric wrapped cord is then coiled and stitched together using a zigzag stitch on my sewing machine.  I continue to wrap the coil and shape each item as it is stitched.

Each piece has its own unique color pattern and slight variation in shape.  Because every piece is handmade, each one is a true original.  Our handmade baskets display the raw edge of the fabrics used to create it.  They are handmade in our non-smoking farmhouse.  

I make our fabric items using the same technique my Great Grandmother used over 50 years ago.  She lovingly transformed worn out clothing into useful household items that were used in their New England farmhouse.  While her items were made purely for utility purposes, it is my goal to create beautiful handmade items that can serve a useful purpose in your home.

Each basket in our Collection comes with a hand signed product tag that includes the date that the basket was finished.  Each basket is numbered and displayed in our photo gallery.

Our fabric items can be cleaned by spot cleaning or washing in the gentle cycle of your washing machine.  Gently reshape baskets or trivets while still damp and allow to air dry.  Overturning a damp basket on top of a bowl will ensure that it retains its shape while drying.

Trivets are not fire or flameproof.  They are constructed of cording, fabric, and thread.  They should not be placed in the microwave, oven, or directly over an open flame or hot burner.  We find them to be an excellent buffer between a hot cooking pan and our kitchen counter.  As they are made using natural materials, they will eventually conduct some heat, especially when used under extreme conditions.  Care should be taken to ensure that they are not damaged and that the surfaces beneath them are adequately protected.

We also make custom pieces to order.  Contact us if you have questions or would like to place a custom order. We would love to work together to make a beautiful piece just for you.

We hope to be sending something special from our farmhouse to your house soon!
