Wool Easter Eggs - The Magic Onions

Wool Easter Eggs

I’m not a fan of the little hollow plastic Easter eggs everyone seems to go mad for. In fact I can’t stand them! They are all… um… plastic! Yuck! They are usually garish colors and hard and cold to the touch…  not warm and fuzzy like all things Easter are supposed to be. And the waste!!! Oh my… what happens to all those horrid little plastic things when Easter is over? Landfills?? If it takes a plastic beverage bottle 450 years to break down, I imagine these awful plastic Easter eggs will take even longer!

There are lots of eco-friendly alternatives out there… paper mache eggs, wooden eggs, fabric eggs, knitted eggs and, of course, woolen eggs.

I have Felted Easter Eggs available in Fairyfolk… 100% natural and in beautiful colored wool. Don’t you think your little ones would rather find a couple of these warm and fuzzy eggs than 30 horrid little plastic things?


If you purchase from Fairyfolk before Monday 25 March, your Easter goodies will still arrive in time for Easter (in the USA).

Blessings and magic,

  1. So adorable! Plastic eggs don’t even stand a chance.

  2. Samantha Moore-Schwermann says:

    My son is allergic to lanolin. Is your wool treated with lanolin? I know there is a natural amount already in the wool.

  3. Michelle says:

    I understand not liking plastic. But you can actually keep the plastic ones and use again and again. I couldn’t imagine throwing them away. The woolen eggs are cute!

  4. I can understand as well…I prefer wood or felt as well…but like Michelle said, you definitely can reuse them for many years and I am sure most people do. It just seemed a little harsh/judgemental of what you had to say about some people’s choices.

    • Hi Tara,
      I’m sorry if I came off as judgemental… I didn’t mean for it to sound that way. They just seem to be wherever I go right now… huge big bags of them and I worry that not many people do reuse the same ones year after year. I truly hope that I’m wrong and that most people will not just throw them in the trash on the day after Easter.
      Blessings and magic,

  5. I would have to agree…they are everywhere. I have always wondered how the stores are able to sell them (I mean one person can only have so many)…maybe, unfortunately, people are just throwing them away every year…which would be such a shame. Thank you for your many craft ideas. My daughters and I enjoy them.
    Happy Spring to you and yours:)
