Sweet Tweet

Well, isn't this felted bird house just as sweet as a sun-kissed berry picked straight from the patch? It is made from 100% hand-felted, sustainably-sourced wool, and colored with 100% non-toxic dyes. Not only will it bring a summer-ripened touch to your decor, it also has a background you can sink your teeth into: it is crafted by Fair Trade artisans in Kathmandu, providing income that sustains individuals, families and communities.

Hang the berrylicious birdhouse inside as a charming, natural accent, or outside to provide housing for your feathered friends. Expect it to last a year or more in fully exposed weather. Hand felted wool is remarkably strong and durable. If placed in direct sun colors will begin to gently fade in about 2-3 months, similar to any type of dyed fabric. Natural wool is mold resistant and if left in the open air it should not mold or mildew. 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.

This sweet little birdhouse is handcrafted by Fair Trade artisans in Kathmandu. Would you display it indoors as a colorful home accent or hang it outside for your feathered friends to enjoy?

I like it, but would probably not actually use it as a birdhouse since the color isn't going to last very long...maybe on a screened in porch.

I like it but I'm not sure how long it would last outside in a region like mine where the weather is often unpredictable.

Don't like it.

The practicality of a wool birdhouse seems slim to non- existent. Birds would sully the pretty colors with "droppings" and mud , while their claws would shred the material leaving a nondescript hanging chunk of wool. It would be advertised better as an inside decorative item.


I like it. Maybe use it as a Christmas tree ornament if it won't work outside?
