Once you begin using wool as a stuffing material, you won't want to go back to the polyester stuff. This wool has been cleaned and carded and is a pleasure to use. In dollmaking, it's the best stuffing available! It warms to the touch and can be shaped. It doesn't clump and packs nicely and firmly. It's also excellent for stuffing toys, for making quilts and it can be felted. It actually softens your hands as you work with it! I love it and won't use anything else.
We no longer sell this item.
We recommend West Earl Woolen Mill in Ephrata, PA.

The Nimble Thimble is a soft, leather thimble that conforms to the shape of your finger. It has a protective metal tip so the needle can be pushed through the thickest fabric. Excellent for handsewing, quilting and other needlework. I find it is the most comfortable thimble I've ever tried!

Wooden Beads in Flesh Tones
They are difficult to find, but we have them in every size and fleshtone color available! These wooden beads are perfect for creating little dolls. The smallest can be hands and feet, while the larger are the perfect sized heads. These are the same beads we use for our Little People and our Easy Fairy Dolls and other small doll kits. Since they are already stained and varnished in three colors, they can be used directly out of the package! Or they can be easily covered with fabric, such as we do when creating our own Fairy Dolls. Either way, they make your dollmaking quicker and easier!
Each package comes with approximately an equal number of each color: Very Fair, Brown and Tan. The number of beads per package varies, depending on size chosen (see list with description below).
These tiny wings are 1” across, which are just the right size for tiny fairy dolls! Cut off the antennae; glue them to the fairy’s back and she’s ready for flight! They are sold by the set of six wings in six different colors with glitter dots. Note: Due to small parts, these are recommended for use with children over age 3.
These beautiful wire and net wings are perfect for small fairy dolls and angels. They are moldable, so you can reshape if desired. They can be painted with glitter glaze for a dazzling effect. These "angel" style wings have gold covered wire.
This is the most ingenious product because it has multiple uses for felting. This 100% wool bulky yarn is very loosely spun and, used directly from the package, is wonderful for needle or wet felting. But untwist it slightly and it becomes pencil roving. Twist just a little tighter and the yarn becomes thinner for more precise placement and crisp lines. The uses of this product are varied – it is perfect for clothing embellishment, creating wool pictures, fashioning or outlining a needle felted motif, making felted jewelry, enhancing 3-D needle felted sculptures or use when only a small amount of color is needed. This assortment package contains a total of more than 27 yards of nine beautiful, vibrant colors (approximately 3 yards of each): Black, White, Orange Poppy, Tundra Green, Bermuda Blue, Red Rose, Garnet, Peacock and Violet.

Clover Brand Stuffing Tool
This stuffing tool is excellent for tight or small spaces, such as fingers and toes. Also, it can be used in Trapunto quilting. The steel tip is angled (like a dental tool) for better visability when stuffing. It has a flat and easy-to-use handle, which gives stability in pushing and makes detailed work less strenuous. Made by the Clover Manufacturing Company. Measures about 5" long.

Extra Wide Tubular Gauze
This hard-to-find, flesh colored, cotton tube is used to form the head of larger Waldorf-style dolls. This weave of this extra large tubular gauze is not as tight as the 2" above, which allows for more stretch when used to create dolls seventeen inches and larger. One yard (36") makes approximately two or three large dolls. (Note: To look at this gauze compared with the 2" above, you might not notice much difference in the width. This wider gauze has a weave that allows for greater stretch.)
EX LARGE - 2-5/8" wide

Simply the BEST Stuffing Fork (Mini)
The notched end grabs hold of the wool and moves or packs it quickly and easily. Take a small amount of wool (or any stuffing material) in one hand, insert the fork and spin like a screwdriver. The wool will take hold while you’re turning and wrap around the end like a Q-Tip. Then you push the stuffing into your project, hold it in the area you are stuffing, and back your tool off. The wool stays put! I use this tool for small spaces, like toes, fingers or the narrow limbs of small dolls. Highly recommended!
