The pinnacle of femininity, a classic opulent powder puff is a wonderful amenity for your vanity table. My handmade dusting powder puffs are inspired by the glory days of Hollywood when glamorous starlets reveled in a beauty routine that pampered the soul as well as the body.
I offer luxury dusting powder puffs in a variety of styles and materials. These exquisite puffs are constructed from pure natural Merino wool. The applicators are heirloom quality and will last for years. When needed, these puffs can be gently hand laundered in cold water with a product like Woolite, allowed to air dry and combed or brushed back to the original lush fullness and fluff.
The sheepskin comes from the Merino breed that was developed in the 1600's and are prized for their long lush fibers which are the whitest and softest of all natural fibers. Merino is much finer than other wools with fibers that are only 20 microns, the human hair is 100 microns in diameter. This fineness means that Merino wool is very flexible and soft.
The wool puffs are very large measuring between 8 and 10 inches when fully extended depending on the length of the individual fleece. The longer fleeces usually create a flatter, wider puff while the shorter fleeces result in a thicker puff that is not a wide. Some of my puffs are a more standard 6 inch size. Please refer to each item listing for the sizes.
Each puff is adorned with a white satin ribbon rosette and a handle is added for convenience of use. The handles are carefully attached with ribbon or hardware. Cap covers are used to protect your skin from any contact with a rough bolt head.
My puffs come in a white window gift box suitable for gifting.
I also offer puffs created with acrylic shaggy fur for those who prefer a vegan version. These puffs are very large, approximately 8 to 10 inches in diameter. The acrylic fur puffs are two pieces sewn together and stuffed with fiber fill resulting in a much thicker puff. While these puffs do not have the soft delicate feel of the sheepskin puffs as the acrylic is coarser, they still provide a nice sensual treat.
By popular request, I now offer a long handled powder puff. These puffs are the same size and quality as my extra large puffs. Instead of the satin ribbon rosette with decorative handle, these long handle dusting powder puffs have an eco friendly, simple, elegant bamboo handle.
I also offer glass powder shakers which are reproductions of depression pressed glass in deep cobalt blue, pretty pink and clear.
You can also use a crystal bowl filled with your favorite glitter or powder. I offer vanity jars filled with my powders which are available separately for sale in my ArtFire studio.
I hope you will treat yourself to the silky smooth delight of a fine quality dusting powder gliding along your skin with a magnificent handcrafted powder puff. They make marvelous gifts, too!
Thanks for visiting,
