I call the wool sculptures that I make, "woolitures". I sculpt each one by needlefelting wool rovings of natural colored sheep or llama wool.
The pictures here are of past work. I make each one individually just for you of your favorite Boston. If you just like the breed, but don't have a specific favorite, I will do all the research and can make that for you, also.
Woolitures are soft, warm, light and unbreakable, more like our animal buddies are. It's a fairly new technique so there are not a lot available and custom portrait work with this medium is hard to find. Needlefelt sculptures are truly one of a kind and can not be reproduced exactly.
I love to capture details and the personality of your pets. You get to pick the pose you would like and I can also make their favorite toys as part of the wooliture-all included. This is the small size wooliture of 1"-4".
Each custom wooliture takes from 3-6 weeks to create. Each one comes with a certificate of authenticity, signed by me.
Due to a customer who received their custom wooliture, loved it and then did not pay the remainder due or return their wooliture or respond to any communication, so we could work a payment arrangement out, I will no longer be able to offer a 50% down payment up front. I had many trustworthy customers who paid for the work I did for them. Thank you to all of you! I appreciate the majority of honest people. I'm truly sorry that I have to change my policy now.
Payment in full is expected at the time of the order. When you receive your wooliture, if you are not satisfied, return your wooliture in good condition within 5-7 business days and you will be refunded 50% of the price. I have never had any returned for repairs in all the years I have been making these. I just offer that as an assurance with this newish art form.
Secure payment can be made at www.paypal.com to email address RoseThistleRanch [!at] aol.com.
I offer a lifetime warrantee. If the need for repairs should arise, please send your wooliture back into me and I will repair it free for life. You do incur the shipping costs. I've never had any returned for repairs in all the years that I've been making these, though. I just offer this for your piece of mind with this new art form. I spend many hours on each custom sculpture and I want you to be very happy and enjoy your art for years to come.
If you would like a different breed of dog or any other type of animal made just for you or to give as a gift or for a memorial, I have three sizes available as the top three items in the shop. I will make any type animal, any size.
