Beautiful Felt Wool Heart Keyring – Needle felted keyring made from hand-dyed fleece from Mango!
These beautiful nature-inspired heart-shaped keyrings are made from 100% wool from my flock. The wool is all hand-dyed or its natural colour, blended together and needle felted into the shape of a heart and then threaded through a length of strong waxed cotton and fastened to a rustic colour keyring. They are really lovely lightweight keyrings, not heavy or clunky – I have one myself on my car keys. They are modelled in the photos by Crumble the sheep who thinks they are good enough to eat!
Most of the wool used to make the keyrings comes from Mango the sheep and each keyring comes with a little picture of Mango. They are packaged in recycled tissue paper and posted as a large letter parcel. The cotton and the metal keyrings are sourced from small British suppliers on Etsy.
These will make sweet little gifts and practical keyrings and each sale directly supports my woolly flock. I shear all our sheep myself with traditional blade shears and all the fleeces are processed by my hand here at our home.
Mango is an elderly Texel cross sheep who is very friendly and very greedy. I gave her a home when her last owner moved away and needed to rehome her pet sheep. I wasn’t sure what to do with Mango’s fleece, it is not the sort of fleece I am used to working with but I wanted to make use of her wool and help Mango help sustain the flock and I discovered that her fleece is absolutely perfect for needle felting! Both hers and Xena’s fleeces are the best of all my sheep’s fleeces for needle felting. They make fantastic solid needle felt – ideal for hanging decorations and bases for needle felted animals.
Keyring dimensions: The wool heart has a diameter of approx 4.5cm at its widest. The whole length including the keyring, string and heart is approx 13cm.
The price is for 1 keyring from the photos. Please use the options to select which keyring you want by referring to the photos – you will get the exact same keyring – please note that the mix of colours is different on each side of the heart they have different patterns on each side so are wonderfully unique.
As these are handmade with hand-dyed wool no two hearts are ever quite the same – as is the beauty of handmade items.
A lot of time, care and love go into all my items they are all individually made one at a time by just 1 pair of hands – from caring for and shearing the sheep, washing the wool and crafting an item to the packaging and posting – handmade in the truest sense of the word.

We keep a well-loved, high welfare flock of pet and rescue sheep on the Llyn Peninsular in North Wales. Our sheep are a part of the family and each is known by name. All our wool and makes are vegetarian-friendly as we do not breed or sell sheep for the meat market and our sheep live out their natural lives with us. I am a full-time mum and shepherdess. In my (none existent!) free time I make things from wool from the sheep in order to sustain them.
