We made this autumn brooch, because we love shape and smell of chestnuts. When fall is coming, we pick them and carry in our bags or pockets of our coats. If you do the same from time to time, you probably know how pleasant it is. Now you can have your own chestnut brooch always with you. This autumn jewelry is felted by hand. It consists of soft merino wool in yellow and green and is decorated with natural silk fibers. It is kind of a leaf brooch but it has a large chestnut on its front. The chestnut is half covered with its spiky shell and looks really nice, making this autumn brooch an original piece of fall jewelry. As the leaf has a hand sewn safety-pin on its back, you can easily wear this fall brooch with your dresses, sweaters or jackets and pin it to your bags and hats. It will always give your outfit a bit of woodland look.

How to care about felted handicraftMerino does not need to be washed as often as other types of wool. However, you may want to refresh it from time to time. Felted accessories and jewelry keep their colors and shape if hand washed gently in warm water. Here is a detailed instruction on how to care about them (we enclose it in every shipment as well):
- Wash your felt handicraft manually at about 30 Celsjus degrees using washing agents for wool.
- Dip them gently, but do not rub - otherwise they may shrink or deform.
- After washing, rinse your felt item with water of the same temperature, preferably with a rinsing liquid for wool.
- Do not wring or twist felt - remove the excess water with your hands using a towel.
- Spread out washed accessories on a towel to let them dry.
- If necessary iron your felt item using 'wool' mode or applying a low temperature.

Take a look behind the scenes
These small knots of wool are ephemeral and beautiful like a snowflakes. They are a perfect for handmade felt replacing glitter or sequins applied for other fabrics.
Superfine merino wool is just perfect for fashion applications. With its delicacy, excellent thermal properties, strong fibers and antiallergic effect it is invaluable.
Take a deep breath before you take it in your hand. With its hooked barbs felting needle is a smart and dangerous tool for tangling fibers in the most laborious possible way.
Wool yarn – if shaggy enough – can be interwoven with merino fibers. Since it fits in perfectly with felt, it is one of my most favourite decorations.
