Phineus is a Chicken Little Footstool who is looking for a good home. His feathers are fashioned with hand-spun goat mohair, naturally hand-dyed with indigo.
*Mohair is a fragile fiber and indigo dye may transfer. This particular chicken is most appropriate for the light-of-foot rather than for heavy use.

The chickens are handcrafted in Lyons, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri with care and delight, upholstered to function as footstools. Each is one-of-a-kind, unique in posture and personality. A turned wood egg-shaped core stands on bronze feet and is connected to a bronze beak. Feathers are handcrafted with traditional fiber art techniques- dyeing, felting, spinning, knitting- and are stitched by hand. And a surprise? Their heads bob.
