Bird House - Hot Air Balloon
This hand felted wool birdhouse can be hung outside as well as inside, and yes, small birds like wren, chickadees, nuthatch and titmouse may go inside! The 1.25" hole is sized for use by small birds but can be slightly enlarged to appeal to larger birds such Bluebirds and Tree Swallows. Birds might also pull at the wool to use in making their own nests. Hang one up and see what happens!
Measurements: 12.5" x 6"
Materials: 100% sustainably harvested and naturally water repellent wool. Hanging cord and bamboo perch made with Hemp. Hand-crafted by skilled artisans working in a fair trade production center in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Care Instructions: Surface 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. Otherwise, work the spot with mild soapy water, then rinse and air-dry. Do not use a washing machine or dryer. Will last forever in a protected place such as a porch or inside where its highly decorative qualities are sure to bring a smile to everyone.
