Radish Wool Works Felted Babywearing Figures
There are many precious moments in my life I wish I could freeze in time. These early years of motherhood, while filled with many challenges like sleepless nights and endless laundry, have blessed me with many treasured memories. And of all those priceless snapshots of time, I think that babywearing is one of the things I want to savor longest, and will miss the most when my babies are grown.
I’ve been seeing adorable felted things pop up all over social media the last year or two. But none of them captured my heart and fancy like the babywearing figures from Radish Wool Works.
Jenny of Radish Wool Works creates beautiful handmade figures from local wool. With an emphasis on motherhood and babywearing figures, she has both ready-to-ship figures as well as custom packages that allow you to pick the color and style of the clothing, hair, and, of course, the baby carrier.
Each one is a truly unique, personalized keepsake of “your precious moments in felt”. And, while meant for decoration, they aren’t something that will easily break if they receive a bit of love from a little one or are accidentally knocked off a shelf.
A couple years ago, my husband told me that, for Mother’s Day, I could design a custom babywearing felted wool figure from Radish Wool Works. I was incredibly excited! I had long admired the felted figures and loved the thought of having one that looked like me and my babies. And I was not disappointed! The figure is gorgeous and looks exactly like I was hoping it would.
I was especially impressed with Jenny’s attention to making every detail exactly how I wanted it. She kept in close contact with me and sent me step-by-step updates. If something wasn’t looking the way I was hoping, she would re-do it until it was perfect. I was particularly amazed at how closely she duplicated the striped wrap that I use with my littles. I loved how much I was included in the process of designing my custom figure and couldn’t be happier with the final product!
Whether there’s a mom in your life that’s hard to shop for, or you’re the mom who needed an idea to put on your Christmas wishlist, I think you’ll find some favorites when you browse Radish Wool Works.

The births and first for both my babies! <3
I think one of my treasure memories is hearing my little ones heartbeat for the first time and feeling them move inside me– so precious!!!!!!
Love her work! Would love to have one of my own.
I will forever remember the first laugh if my first baby…I had never heard anything so precious!
I would love to win one of these for my daughter. She wears her 14 monthnlld and is pregnant with baby #2. ☺
These are so sweet and adorable. There are so many special and amazing moments of motherhood, it is hard to just pick one. But that incredible moment when my babies were first snuggled in my arms is one of my very favorites.
Watching my children enjoying a new baby is one of the delightful parts of motherhood!
These are beautiful, adorable and just lovely!!!!!
Giving birth to my daughter was a memory I’ll never forget! Very empowering!
Some of my favorite “mothering” moments is the first few minutes and hours after birth when baby is laying on your chest and snuggled in bed with you and everything is just beautifully peaceful. Also the newborn weeks. I think I’ve taken more time to just sit and snuggle our latest little one (2 mo old, our fourth) cause I just know how quickly this sweet time will pass and soon he’ll be running all over trying to keep up with his brothers and sister. 🙂
I cherish the newborn stage. I love every second of having a teeny newborn! With my first few, the lack of sleep killed me. Now that I know how quickly it goes, I don’t mind missing out on sleep for a few months. It’s just so sweet to hold and nurse and rock that little soul who will be grown so soon.
I love having my new baby close. I am so thankful to be able to do the things that I need to while still having them with me.
The three times my baby was laid in my arms, definitely 🙂 The start of a new era, every time. Immediately, I wondered how it was possible that we had lived our entire lives without this little guy 🙂
Loved those first few newborn days wearing my little girl close to my heart and feeling like my heart would burt with joy and thankfulness each time I kissed her little head.
