Oh how we love the Planets of the Solar System Felting Kit, let us count the ways...
For starters, this kit is lovingly put together by hand in Ireland by a wonderful "maker and designer". From the maker: I have been into astronomy since I was a child and the more I learn about the universe, the more it blows my mind. I woke up in the middle of the night with the idea for this kit and spent weeks working on developing it. I absolutely loved making it.
Let me tell you, it shows! From the reusable, sturdy jute shopping bag that the kits comes in, to the lovely merino wool used to felt with, to the whopping 7 page tutorial on felting, no stone was left unturned, and we assure you, no question unattended to.
The Sun however, was left out, but for good reason. This kit is to scale, meaning that if the Sun were to be included, there would also be an almost 4 foot diameter ball to felt, along with all the other planets. Which although we would love a giant Sun globe in our office, it might be a little over the top.
The Planets of the Solar System Felting Kit is great for lazy summer afternoons, neighborhood summer camps, summer school projects, the list goes on. But what is most impressive about this amazing duo of wool and curiosity is the combination of creativity and learning. Of the tactile and the infinite. Of down to earth crafting, and out of this world wonder.
We hope you'll take a closer look at the Planets of the Solar System Felting Kit, we promise you will love it as much as we do!
