I'd like to introduce you to Well Urned Rest - biodegradable urns for natural burial.
I hope you will take a look at https://www.wellurnedrest.com where I share some beautiful felted urns for cremation ashes. As these are the sort of item you may choose for yourself (to enjoy during your lifetime) or to honour the life of a special friend or relations, it seemed logical to have a separate website, rather the displaying them along with the gift and wedding items in these pages.
There is also a Facebook page where I can share the newest designs. This is https://www.facebook.com/wellurnedrest - but if you type wellurnedrest all in one word into the Facebook search bar you will get to it anyway.
I was shortlisted for the Wool Innovation Prize for this work - it being a new business using wool in an unusual way. I really gained valuable insight and useful information from the panel of judges.
This, and recent news pieces that caught my eye, have lead me to new thoughts for these vessels, and I am currently working on different designs which will be less costly - I want everyone to be able to enjoy these beautiful designs rather than feeling they are out of reach. There are now also 'huggable' designs as I have already made some of these on commission for people who wanted an embraceable option and textile vessels in cotton and linen suitable for vegan purchasers will soon be ready.
In addition, I have recently been asked to make urns for pets. These take the form of huggable pouches (in your choice of colour) and will be introduced onto the website soon. Obviously they do have to be made to order due to the massive size variations - from hamsters to Great Danes.
