Felted Magic Mouse Decoration
Cheeky little mouse familiars. Brought to life with wool and Magic – quite literally as the main wool used to make them comes from Magic the sheep! Every part of them even the eyes and the tail are made from hand-dyed and carefully handspun wool – made entirety at our farm by my own hands, no two mice are ever exactly the same. This particular pair are called Soot and Cinder. They look very sweet sitting in a hearth or on a shelf or mantlepiece, especially in a cottage or farmhouse setting and make lovely unusual little gifts. The mice are completely natural, biodegradable and all the wool comes from my own fiber sheep. A mix of different wool has been used in their creation from several of my own sheep but their actual bodies are made using wool from Magic (pictured).
Please select which mouse you would like from the drop-down menu (Soot or Cinder). Each is presented in a simple card gift box – the perfect present for someone or perhaps for yourself!
Size – These felted mice measure approx 6.5cm high and 2-3cm wide at the base – this in not including the length of the tails.
Mice do vary ever so slightly in size with some being shorter and rounder and others slimmer and taller which just makes them look all perfectly unique.
All my mice are very solidly felted with carefully added details. As such, each mouse takes approximately 2 hours or more to make at the felting stage. That is not including the time spent shearing the sheep, washing the wool, carding, dyeing or spinning the little mouse tails!
The inspiration for these needle felted mice came from the real little things. Living in the countryside in an old stone house we are very close to nature and so hearing mice within the old stone walls and attic at night is something that happens from time to time. One winter though I was sat up late needle felting when a mouse ran across my feet! This was the first time we ever had mice find a way from within the walls into the home. More mice naturally followed and caused us some trouble for a little while. That was when I had the inspiration to start making needle felted mice – and I can assure you these little critters are just as sweet and far less messy than their real-life counterparts!
Please note – This is NOT a toy. It has been created for display and decoration purposes only. It is made from small needle felted pieces and hairy textured wool and so could pose a hazard for babies or small children.
A lot of time, care and love go into all my items they are all individually made one at a time by just 1 pair of hands – from caring for and shearing the sheep, washing the wool and crafting an item to the packaging and posting – handmade in the truest sense of the word.

We keep a well-loved, high welfare flock of pet and rescue sheep on the Llyn Peninsular in North Wales. Our sheep are a part of the family and each is known by name. All our wool and makes are vegetarian-friendly as we do not breed or sell sheep for the meat market and our sheep live out their natural lives with us. I am a full-time mum and shepherdess. In my (none existent!) free time I make things from wool from the sheep in order to sustain them.
