"Dart Frogs" Felted Frog Toys
100% Natural Wool Dart Frog – Fair Trade Eco-Friendly Kid’s Felted Frog Toys
The Felted Dart Frog is an adorable item for home decoration or a sweet child’s gift! These hand-made, 100% natural felted frog toys are super cheerful and fun. Felt Dart Frog Toys are made by dry needle felting, a technique that transforms un-spun wool into sculptured creations, such as animals or birds. The pure 100% wool has an outer layer of scales giving its strands a jagged edge. This allows the fibers to become entangled when a barbed needle is repeatedly inserted into the ball of un-spun wool.
WHO MADE It?
The Felted Dart Frog Toys are produced by the Spectacled Bear Conservation Society, a Threads of Peru partner NGO that works to ensure the conservation of the Spectacled Bear and also to support indigenous artisan weavers (pictured) Each Dart Frog is hand-made by indigenous artisans from communities in the “Rio de la Leche” watershed in northwestern Peru, an area with high unemployment, extreme poverty and where SBC conducts its research and conservation programs.
