Handmade Autumn Mushroom Toadstool Keyring
A cute little mushroom / toadstool keyring made from 100% wool and fairy magic. The wool used to craft these toadstools comes from Mango the sheep. Mango’s wool has been hand-dyed and then needle felted into little toadstools which are threaded through a length of strong waxed cotton twine and fastened to a keyring. They are lovely and lightweight keyrings, not heavy or clunky. Perfect for the Autumn and Halloween seasons they make sweet little gifts and practical keyrings for all mushroom, toadstool and fairy fans. Each sale supports my woolly flock and me. The cotton and the metal keyrings are sourced from small British suppliers on Etsy. I shear all our sheep myself with traditional blade shears and all the fleeces are processed by hand here at our home. Handmade in the truest sense!
Mango who grew the wool used to make these keyrings is an elderly Texel cross sheep who is very friendly and very greedy. I gave her a home when her last owner moved away and needed to rehome her pet sheep. I wasn’t sure what to do with Mango’s fleece, it is not the sort of fleece I am used to working with but I wanted to make use of her wool and help Mango help sustain the flock and I discovered that her fleece is absolutely perfect for needle felting! It makes fantastic solid needle felt – ideal for hanging decorations and bases for needle-felted animals.
This listing is for 1 toadstool/mushroom from the photos please view the photos with text and select which item you would like from the drop-down menu. There are 2 of each colour in stock. They are each presented in a simple card gift box – a perfect present for someone or perhaps for yourself!
Size – Toadstools are approx 5cm high (with string and keyring 14cm total length) Size can vary slightly either way as each toadstool is handmade and slightly different.
All my needle-felted items are very solidly felted with carefully added details. They are crafted with a lot of love and care. They are not rushed so they take a surprising amount of time to make not including the time spent shearing the sheep, washing the wool, carding, dyeing or spinning the little legs!
Please note – This is NOT a toy. It has been created for display and decoration purposes only. It is made from small needle felted wool pieces and hairy textured wool and so could pose a hazard for babies or small children. Please DO NOT give to children under 3 years old.
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.
