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.
