Check out this amazing compilation of felted animals and birds – they look so realistic!
These artists are real artists of felted wool! When you look at their artworks, it seems that they’re about to run or fly right now!
Here’s more information about the artists:
1. Tatyana Glushkova and Yulia Glushkova are a creative tandem of mother and daughter from Moscow.
They work under the name "WoolClub" and make cute felted wool animals.
Tatyana and Yulia have been felting wool since 2005. It started as a hobby but turned into their business and passion. They’ve participated in exhibitions, won international competitions, taught and even written books (in 2014 they published their first book that became a bestseller, and was printed in several editions. Now they’re working on the second and third books).
Tatyana and Yulia are self-taught artists, and their unique technique is the result of both their experiments and their mistakes.
They never expected that their works would gain such wide popularity around the world! The artists have been invited to participate in art and puppet exhibitions and competitions, where their toys received prizes and awards.
Their articles and master classes began to appear in various magazines and informational publications, they began to write pieces on felting. Tatyana and Yulia even participated in programs and stories about needlework on TV!
Creating felted toys is a complicated process; it takes 8-15 hours for a small toy and 60-140 hours for a large animal with complex details and character expressions. And that’s only for the felting process without taking into account creating the design. Once, they created a big wombat, and the process took almost a year!
Tatyana and Yulia just love nature and animals! Most of their works are naturalistic cute animals. They try not to make toys as similar to real animals as possible, allowing them to just be toys. But their koala, Tonya, looks so realistic that it’s been published many times by various public groups and has even stood in for a real koala, collecting millions of likes. They were surprised that so many people took the funny felted toy for a real animal!
"The process of creating a wool toy is not easy, but it’s fascinating, and even magical!" Tatyana and Yulia say.

2. Elena is a talented wool artist from Russia. She has a professional art education. Some time ago, she fell in love with felt! At first it was wet felting, but later it turned out that her real love is dry felting!
The artist says that it’s an amazing feeling when right under your fingers a figure is born from a shapeless cloud of wool. There is real magic in it! Knowing all the details of the process, Elena still can’t believe her eyes every time!
Wool is a very sensitive material. It follows its master’s plan, but at the same time it prompts and guides the artist. Working with wool is incredibly nice! For Elena, needle work is a kind of meditation!
Most of all, Elena loves making birds. She says that the bird world is so huge, diverse, and bright, and only butterflies can compete with the abundance of color found among birds!
Before each new job, Elena looks at photos of birds, finds the desired subject and…falls in love with it! Without this love nothing happens. Then, she starts collecting material. She collects a "dossier" on the feathery model. She reads about habitats, descriptions of colors, behavior, and nutrition, and collects as many photos as possible from different angles to catch all the characteristics of the bird; its movements, head setting. Elena watches videos and listens to its trill. She tries to catch all the most important characteristics.
During her work, she tries to convey as accurately as possible all the features and the color of the model. For that purpose, she sometimes has to dye wool in a special paint for a particular bird.
All eyes, beaks and legs are also made by Elena individually for each bird. So, by the end of her work, every bird feels so close to her!
