Of Wool and Woolly Creatures
Móhu began as a small Etsy store all the way back in 2011. Our name is a Chinese word that means fuzzy or woolly. It also means blurry or vague, which is quite fitting considering we didn’t start with a clear direction in mind. We just wanted to make things.
At some point these small amigurumi* creatures emerged, and soon we were overrun. Now they cover the walls and shelves and hide in any little spaces they can find. They stare at us while we work. They stare with little beady eyes. Because their eyes are actually made of beads.
We live in Canada now, in a small city on an island on the Eastern most point of North America. It snows a lot here, but the creatures don’t get cold because they’re made of fancy wool.
We really like wool; the shop is an excuse to hoard it. Because you need to have all the different kinds and all the different colours. You have to have enough wool to roll around in.
In our shop, you can acquire your very own ready-made small woolly creature, or get patterns and kits to manufacture your own little horde. Visit the blog to find crochet tutorials, free amigurumi patterns, and news about our woolly adventures.
*an amigurumi is a soft toy that’s knitted or crocheted.
