Handmade Wool Hand Puppets

  • Hand-knit from local wool, these African puppets are soft and safe for children. Each all-natural puppet is made from wool that has been grown, carded, spun, and dyed by women in Molo, Kenya.

    The puppets measure 10"-11"H and 9"W. Some variation may occur due to the handmade nature of this item.

  • A fiber spinner named Gwen Meyer saw potential when she learned that the ladies of the Molo community were paying to have their sheep's wool taken away after being sheared. Gwen introduced a spinning wheel and taught the ladies to spin, and soon the women began earning a small side income from the sale of their hand knit crafts. Today these talented ladies work under the name of the Karunga Women's Group.
