Wool Playlands

What are Playscapes?

Lush, soft, colorful, wool playlands to nourish the imagination!

Imaginative dwellings for fairy folk, gnomes, animals, and a world of magical inhabitants!

A "jumping off" point, a framework, to kick start the creation of many fantastical stories.  I believe each child's world would be a wonder to see!

All elements are both sewn and felted to the base mat for security, allowing for rigorous play.

All playscapes come with 2 wire "bendy gnomes".

                Fairytale Tree

 

This majestic tree makes for a truly magical centerpiece to your table.  It is bright, colorful, earthy, and ethereal, all at the same time.  The felted earth is firm and sturdy with an array of vines, flowers, and mushrooms and is an inviting place to add treasures from the garden.  The leaf canopy is soft and delicate, giving the piece a fairy tale look and feel. 

The permanent leaf canopy is gently wound fleece and isn't suitable for play by little ones.  I suggest directing the attentions of little children to the earthy ground with the firmly felted stones and mushrooms. 

This tree can serve as a year round base for your nature table and a great repository for all of those acorns, stones, shells, and flowers that make their way in from the garden.  Included are wools of rust, red, orange, and white to layer over the foliage to represent Autumn and Winter.  It's a wonderful way to cultivate awareness of the seasons for children.

         Mushroom Forest

This playscape hosts a plethora of toadstools, a cave for a cozy shelter, and a winding river with a fallen leaf.  In the regular size, the largest mushroom stands 7" tall and cave is about 6" in size with lots of vines crawling up its walls.  

Includes a campfire.
