House of Moss
House of Moss is the creation of Alison Comfort Bay, a fiber artist and miniatures enthusiast living in the Pacific Northwest. Her aesthetic is very much shaped by the beautiful surroundings in the Portland, Oregon, area: The damp climate creates a gorgeous forest environment, full of moss, trees, and mushrooms. She was introduced to Waldorf education during the year she spent as a nanny, and the Waldorf sensibilities of natural materials and simplicity have stayed with her in her work. Add that to Alison's lifelong love of tiny things, and you get House of Moss: a miniature world of woodland-themed felted wool.
Most of the items at House of Moss are needle-felted. Needle-felting is the process of sculpting puffs of wool (roving) into cohesive felted shapes using a specially notched needle to poke through the material until the fibers intertwine. Wool is completely eco-friendly and biodegradable.
