Wool Heart Keyring Heather – Needle felted keyring made from hand-dyed fleece from Mango!
These pretty purple and green heather keyrings are made from 100% wool that I have dyed and needle felted into the shape of a heart and then threaded through a length of strong waxed jute twine and fastened to a keyring. They are lovely and lightweight keyrings, not heavy or clunky. Each keyring comes with a little picture of Mango herself and is packaged in recycled tissue paper. They make sweet little gifts and practical keyrings and each sale supports my woolly flock. The heart itself is natural, biodegradable, and made with wool from lovely Mango. I shear all our sheep myself with traditional blade shears and all the fleeces are processed by 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 11cm. The photo is an example and may not be the exact keyring you will receive therefore it may vary ever so slightly.
The price is for 1 keyring from the photos. Please use the options to select whether you want the solid purple, green or a purple/green mix (of which there are 2). 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.
