I designed this tiger lily brooch for women who love exotic jewelry. It is one of my biggest brooches and it is really outstanding. It has a shape of a wild orange flower with cute stamens in the middle. The flower sits on a narrow leaf and on the other side of it there are two oblong buds. With all the details this exotic flower brooch looks pretty wild and will add a delightful note to your outfit.
I make this large flower brooch in felting technique. I use only soft merino wool and silk fibers, so it is natural and eco-friendly. You can wear it in many ways, e.g. with clothes, bags and shawls. If you combine this tiger lily brooch with plain and subdued clothes, you won’t need anything else to accessorize yourself. Its bright color and exotic design will make all the work for you, attracting attention and catching men’s eyes. If you are energetic and full of life, this orange felted brooch will be perfect for you. It will be also a great gift for every confident woman who love felted jewelry and exotic flowers.

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!
Delicate wool fibers, just as my hands, need to be protected with a soap made of natural olive oils. This soap makes my products longer lasting and skin-friendly.
In wet felting process you use some water to make wool fibers wet. With this watering can I am able to pour it quickly and efficiently.
This technique is pretty similar to wet felting but items you create are more lightweight. You can make nuno felt using silk, linen or other fabric with open weave – just remember to make a mess!
Needle felting is the most laborious and the most precise way of making felt. It is used whenever one works on a detail and wants to control the wool down to the smallest fiber.
