I have a Ewesful pincushion, and it is made of pure handfelted wool according to the tag. They're very pretty pincushions and they really do keep the needles and pins sharp. The company is Brush Hollow Studios out of Viroqua, WI. Miranda, I guess if you and Heather can pull a pile of wool off the sheep you could try felting, dying and rolling it into balls. Don't tell the sheep this was my idea, huh???!
