Fun & Functional handfelted wool birdhouses are taking backyards by storm!
And yes, They can be hung outside as well as inside! They are made of naturally water repellant wool, and when it does get wet (mainly on the exterior) it will naturally dry itself out. Made with other sustainably harvested materials including a braided natural hemp hanging cord and a bamboo perch.
The 1 1/4'' diameter opening is sized for small birds such as wrens, chickadees, titmice and blue birds. It can be enlarged for larger birds as desired. If birds don't choose to nest inside they can pull at the wool for material to feather their own nests.
Comes partially filled with recycled paper to maintain the shape in shipping that can easily be removed. When exposed to hard weather the birdhouses will maintain their shape at least for a year. Colors will begin to fade in full sun exposure after about two months. The colors and shape will last forever in a protected outdoor place such as a porch.
These birdhouses are also fairly traded. What makes it “fair trade”?
These felt birdhouses are made by artisans in Kathmandu, Nepal, who are paid a fair wage for their work. The production center is a clean, safe and enviromentally responsible workplace that meets global “socially compliant” workplace standards. Management promotes the development of skills and abilities of the producers, most of whom are women.
