Thoughtful Gifts for Friends & Family

The holiday season is in full swing at The Woolery! Handmade gifts are a wonderful way to show your friends and family how much they mean to you, so this month we’ve collected a few of our favorite quick projects for those last-minute gifting emergencies! For more crafting inspiration, check out The Woolery on Pinterest!

Knitting:
If you’d like to keep toes warm this winter, but don’t have time to knit a pair of socks, Ysolda Teague’s bulky-weight Not-So-Tiny Slippers are a great compromise!

A pretty coaster set will be appreciated by the recipient, especially when you choose colors that coordinate with their home decor!

Weaving:
Bookmarks are great to tuck into a special book – they make great stocking stuffers, too!

DogCollarNeedle Felting:
Create unique ornaments with this fun, fast technique! We have lots of kits from Black Sheep and Wool Pets. You can turn any of these cute critters into an ornament by purchasing a package of ornament hangers (available at most stores for only a few dollars) or using a little bit of yarn to make loops large enough to hang on the tree. Presto! A menagerie of cute animal ornaments that are great for gifting.

For the fiber enthusiast in your life who has everything, how about fiber-themed jewelry or one of our hand-picked kits? When all else fails, a gift certificate is sure to please!
