felt birdhouse - blue jay & cardinal
- the story
It's amazing how nature's creatures are so interconnected with their habitat; and these idyllic, hand-felted birdhouses invite you to bring some of that harmonious living to your own home or garden. Cardinals gain their bright red color from eating dogwood berries, whose flowers adorn this pale yellow birdhouse. The light blue version is decorated with Chinaberry flowers, a favorite of the raucous Blue Jay.
These 100% hand-felted wool birdhouses, are made by Fair Trade artisans in Nepal from sustainably sourced, 100% non-toxic materials. Hang them inside as a charming, natural accent, or outside to provide housing for your feathered friends. Wool is breathable, provides good insulation, and dries quickly after a rain. The 1.25" diameter opening is perfect for smaller birds, like chickadees, wrens, titmice and others, or can be enlarged for larger species like bluebirds or swallows. Birds may nest inside, or use the wool fibers to create their own nests. Birdhouse should maintain its shape outside for at least a year; colors will fade if left in direct sunlight for more than two months. Handmade in Nepal.
