Yes, it really is a birdhouse! Small birds like wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, and titmice will find this the perfect size to nest in. Water dries quickly from the felted wool and a clean-out door at the bottom lets you remove old nesting materials. It also makes for charming indoor decor, or use as a Christmas tree topper or even a tooth fairy house. Handcrafted of natural sheep’s-wool in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The birdhouse will last forever if used as indoor decoration, or when hung in a protected outdoor area such a porch (which is where wrens prefer to nest). If placed in direct sun, colors will begin to fade within a month as with any dyed fabric, but the opening and body will keep its shape for years even in the harshest weather. The sheep’s-wool body is naturally water repellent. Moisture from dew, rain or snow quickly dries in the open air. Wool is also naturally dirt and mold resistant. Generally, a good brushing is all that's needed. To remove stains, work the spot with mild soapy water, then rinse and air dry. Do not place in washing machine or dryer. If stored over winter, enclose in a sealed bag similar to other woolens to protect against moths. A clean-out door at the bottom lets you remove old nesting materials.
I really like the birdhouse. I ordered that and the gnome birdhouse. The kids preferred the gnome, but I am happy with mine. The workmanship is terrific!
I BOUGHT “ 3 “ ONE FOR MYSELF , BECAUSE I LIKE BIRDS & ONE FOR MY 91 YEAR OLD MOTHER & ONE FOR MY 4 YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER , SO “ BRAVO 👏 “‘TO YOU !!! “ IT SPANED THE “ ENTIRE AGE RANGE 👏😁👏 “
The birdhouse is simply beautiful. I am creating a personal space in my home and this birdhouse will be hung in a corner. The felt is thick, the decorations are detailed, the colors vibrant. I am waiting for the felt birds to become available and I am sure they won’t disappoint. So happy with my purchase. I apologize to my feathered friends, but this one is mine. :-)
