Polar Bear Felt OrnamentSold Out
With every purchase from Spectacled Bear Conservation, you are helping save an endangered species!
This gentle little bear is ready to grace your tree this holiday season. Made of 100% wool. These felt products are made by dry-needle felting, a technique that transforms un-spun wool into sculptured creations, such as animals or birds. The felted product has an outer layer of scales, giving its strands a jagged edge. This allows the fibers to become entangled when a barbed needle is repeatedly inserted into the ball of wool. Each product has a small cotton string that can be used to also hang the product.
These beautiful felted ornaments were hand made by indigenous woman participating in The Spectacled Bear Conservation Societies (SBC) alternative livelihood program that helps create sustainable economic opportunities for woman in critical spectacled bear habitat in northwestern Peru. By purchasing a needle felted wool product you are helping SBC to protect bear habitat while providing an opportunity for women to earn an income and continue to live a traditional lifestyle and care for their children.
