Asher Jasper is the creation of Vicky (Wool addict and Mum to Asher and Jasper). Based in Southern California, Vicky is originally from England but moved to the USA after falling in love with a young American artist on a painting trip to Italy… isn’t that a gorgeous story? She made her first needle felted creation in October 2008 and has never looked back.

These cute little eggy creations are handmade from pure needle felted wool. This process involves taking a sharp, barbed needle and looping loose fibers thousands of times to form the desired shape and pattern. I can’t begin to imagine how long each one takes to create, but I certainly can appreciate the creativity, imagination and love that goes into the process.
