Of wool and woolly creatures

Móhu began as a little Etsy shop 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 really like wool; the shop is an excuse to hoard it. Because you do need to have all the different kinds and all the different colours. You have to have enough wool to roll around in.

In the shop, you can get one or more of these small woolly creatures to stare at you too. Or crochet your own little horde, using our easy amigurumi patterns and kits. 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.
