Meduseld has started making wool filled items for your home!
These are wool-filled pillows made of opulent fabrics with elaborate trims. Each is one-of-a-kind, and come in an assortment of colors to match any decor. Shown above are brocades, damasks, and tapestry fabrics.
Here is a trio of matching pillows made of damask in pewter and bronze shades, with trim in gold, bronze, pewter and black. Their neutral shades would match most decors.
Inspired by a recent trip to the Frontier Culture Museum, I decided to make comforters for my children that would have no petroleum-based products, and that would look as comfortable as the beds in the centuries old homes. I thought that if someone could make a bed fluffy and inviting hundreds of years ago despite the technological obstacles, that I ought to be able to make something even better for my own family.
Here is a prototype comforter that I will be bringing to the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival this weekend. It is unbleached muslin filled with cleaned and carded Jacob wool. This twin sized comforter holds over two Jacob fleeces! Dr. Mercola has been advocating the use of wool products for their health advantages.
The pillows are available for sale this weekend at the Fiber Festival. Please stop by our booth, #4 in the open area. I invite feedback about the comforter, especially about its weight, fabric covering, marketability, and price considerations. The feedback you provide will help me decide whether to add these to our store!
P.S. Meduseld’s store will be closed during the weekend so that none of the inventory is sold twice. It will re-open several days after the Festival.
