About House of Moss
• Handmade Felted Wool Decor for the Natural Home • Est. 2010 •
House of Moss is the creation of Alison Comfort Bay, a fiber artist and miniatures enthusiast living in the Pacific Northwest. Her aesthetic is very much shaped by the beautiful surroundings in the Portland, Oregon, area: The damp climate creates a gorgeous forest environment, full of moss, trees, and mushrooms. She was introduced to Waldorf education during the year she spent as a nanny, and the Waldorf sensibilities of natural materials and simplicity have stayed with her in her work. Add that to Alison's lifelong love of tiny things, and you get House of Moss: a miniature world of woodland-themed felted wool.
House of Moss is a place for natural needle-felted wool home decor, gifts, and Waldorf-inspired children's items: wool acorns, felted mushrooms, embroidered star moss, wool pebbles, tiny felt terrariums and terrarium necklaces, wool nests, woodland-themed Christmas ornaments, and other natural curiosities. They are a lovely way to bring the organic beauty of the natural world to your indoor living space.
Most of the items at House of Moss are needle-felted. Needle-felting is the process of sculpting puffs of wool (roving) into cohesive felted shapes using a specially notched needle to poke through the material until the fibers intertwine.
Wool is completely eco-friendly and biodegradable. Packaging is selected with care as well, including reusable kraft boxes for packing fragile items, and padded mailers made with post-consumer recycled paper, and I use fragrance-free biodegradable detergent for my wet-felting. So you can be sure that, in our quest for lovely artful homes, we are also treading lightly on the earth.
