Sloths – so very cute and cuddly to look at! They are so relaxed and slow, so easy to watch and love.
Fun Facts: All sloths actually have three toes, but the two-toed sloth has only two fingers. Sloths are tree-dwelling animals, they are found in the jungles of Central and South America. A sloth’s body is usually 50 to 60 cm long. The sloth’s nature allows it to conserve energy, moving slower than any other mammal on the planet. This modest pace means that sloths generally travel no more than 125 feet (38 meters) in a single day, and on the rare occasion that they find themselves at ground level, they crawl only 1 foot (30 cm) per minute.
Interesting fact: Saving sloths could save people too — thanks to a veritable ecosystem of fungi living in their coats. The research, published in the scientific journal PLoS One, says that sloth hairs contain compounds that can be used against bacteria, breast cancer cells and the parasites that cause malaria and Chagas’ disease.
A perfect reminder of that special wildlife experience.
UNIQUE HAND CRAFTED LIGHTED ART
We call them Moonlights, they are the ‘up-market’ ELECTRIC powered bottle lamp, NO BATTERIES required!
At the Moonlighting studios in Lincolnshire, we create wonderfully unique ambient lights using bottles, fabrics and papers. We have been creating our lamps for more than 8 years and there are over one hundred designs available. To the best of our knowledge our ‘Moonlights’ are the only ELECTRIC LED bottle lights available anywhere!
Our lamps come ready to plug in and enjoy. They are lit by a wire string of 20 led lights held in place by a cork at the back of the lamp and connected to an electric power cable which has an off/switch and a standard UK plug. The led lights have a lifespan of approximately 10,000 hours. Guaranteed for 12 months by us. LED replacements can also be purchased on our website.
Our Moonlights bring a beautiful ambient glow into any room. Not enough to read by but just enough light:
To warmly light a dark area
Light an entrance hall to welcome you home after a long day
A soft, subtle light for baby’s nursery
A cosy light for the Snug or Lounge
A beautiful and romantic bedside light
A gentle mood light
And of course……just to look nice !
Your Moonlight, whether as a gift for someone special or a treat for yourself, will become a unique and pleasurable addition to any home.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT
Bottles: a lot of our bottles, especially the spirit ones come via recycling through pubs, friends and recycle bins, some wine bottles are purchased new.
Papers: mostly handmade papers and recycled cotton fabrics.
Mouse and Moon use an environmentally friendly ‘glaze’ to adhere the papers and fabrics to the bottles. It is water based and kind to hands, plants, nature.
The LED string lights are low wattage (12volt) therefore an electricity saving. Each set of lights has approximately 10,000hrs worth of light to give – long-lasting and safe to use.
Moonlighting – just enough light to make your world a special place
