How your Fur Baby cushion is made:

Multiple steps and lots of love go into making your Fur Baby cushion.

The process begins with preparing the yarn.

  • Disentangling, separating, cleaning and fluffing the fur in preparation for spinning then takes place.
  • The spinning itself is done by hand, using a wooden spinning wheel.
  • The fibers are then twisted and wound onto a bobbin with the results being a continuous length of yarn. 
  • The yarn is then bundled, ready to be hand washed in hot water and dried.

Weaving the yarn also has multiple steps.

  • The first step is making a warp of 250 threads.
  • The warp is then wound onto the loom and positioned for weaving. Weaving then begins.
  • Once completed, your very special woven pet memories are carefully cut from the loom.

Stitching your woven piece into a cushion is a precise, meticulous task.

  • The correct inner cushion is chosen.
  • Optimal fabric color and texture for the backing are selected to match your woven work of art.
  • Your cushion is then lovingly stitched to give you a highly professional, unique work of art that you will treasure for years to come.

Care Instructions:

Each cushion slip is hand woven and should only be spot cleaned if needed, to protect the delicate threads.
