Greetings from WoolyMossRoots!
At WoolyMossRoots you'll find a haven for knitters, gardeners & creative spirits. In our shop we offer handmade artisan buttons, wooden shawl pins, cedar garden & homestead signs, sustainable wood jewelry, and more. Our buttons are sanded and polished until the wood simply glows, they feel heavenly to the touch, and they truly do add something magic to your special projects. Our wooden shawl pins were originally made to be worn on your favorite cozy shawl, but customers discovered that they also look beautiful worn in the hair. Our cedar garden & homestead signs are made to last and are such a fun addition to your yard. (My current favorite is our new 'Bee Sanctuary' sign, but really I love them all!) We're just beginning to add jewelry to our WoolyMossRoots shop as well and have been dreaming up new designs that will be added in the coming months.
We're a small family business and everything we offer is made by our family in our woodland workshop, on our small Oregon homestead. My husband Jeff is the woodworker and I (Taryn) help with different parts of the process, taking pictures of all the beautiful things he makes to post in the shop. We make things for nature lovers and all of the wood we use has a story. We reclaim many small pieces of wood that would otherwise be discarded by fellow woodworking friends and have been known to salvage particularly beautiful fallen branches. Jeff seems to attract gorgeous woods like a magnet and he's always snatching wood out of our woodpile before it can make it to the woodstove! We use a natural oil finish and all the beautiful colors of wood you see in the shop are as nature made them (we don't use any stains.) When we're not fully immersed in making, our favorite place to be is in the garden. We welcome you to join us on the blog!
I'm happy to say that there are now even more ways for you to share your projects with WoolyMossRoots buttons & shawl pins! In addition to our Ravelry group and Facebook page, we have joined the world of Instagram! You are welcome to share your projects there with the tag #woolymossroots
Taryn: Hmm... I just looked it up and I believe that the last time we were featured on SouleMama was in 2013! And boy, a lot has changed since then! We still have a shop full of our handmade artisan buttons, but now we've added many designs burned into the wood (some favorites are Jeff's original tree design, chickens, celtic knots, and honeybees. I mean really, what could be sweeter than honeybee buttons?) Some customers requested shawl pins (requests are often how new designs and items are often brought into being) and Jeff's been busy making them ever since. We've also added cedar signs and jewelry to the shop since that time. Even with all the new offerings we've been adding though, buttons are still at the heart of the shop and Jeff has been busy making custom buttons for holiday gifts. If you are in need of any custom buttons (or signs) for the holidays, now is the time to place your order!
We're so grateful to our customers who have supported our family business for all these years! Thank you! Thank you for sending us messages about your special projects, telling us the stories behind them, sharing pictures, and letting us be a part of your creations. Seeing our buttons on your projects feels like an honor for us. And so often your projects inspire my knitting (that's how I've fallen in love with so many yarn/wood buttons combinations, one of my very favorites right now being bright yellow yarn paired with black walnut wood buttons.) Louise is on my *must knit* list now because I adored Susan's version so much with WoolyMossRoots buttons!
