Apart from the idea out there that dream catchers help to rid you of those terrible dreams and nightmares they also look great as home decor, come in all different sizes and colours and make great gifts. What else could you ask for!
Dream catchers are all handmade usually either in nylon thread, soft leather, natural hemp fibre and now crochet. Sizes start from a mini 3 cm, 4 cm, 5 cm, 7 cm, 9 cm, 12 cm, 16 cm, 22 cm, 27 cm, 32 cm, 40 cm up to 50 cm. Webs are woven into each circle or heart of the dream catcher. Sometimes you find stones, shells, beads either silver, coconut wood or plastic beads within the webs. From the webs feathers are connected to hang and float in the wind, some dream catchers will also have shells of various kinds which tinkle in the wind and sound beautiful, sometimes there are leather straps, bone beads (either real or look a like), stones, silver beads, coconut beds, plastic beads or coloured beads.
When measurements are given out for a dream catcher you should note that they are always measured from the top of the hanger to the bottom of the feathers.
Dream catchers come in up to 11 colour choices in nylon thread, there are usually less colour choices in the soft leather range. As these are all handmade you should note that each dream catcher is unique and although you may purchase one from a sample photo the one you receive although similar may not be the exact same one shown in the sample picture. White dream catchers are never pure white, even the feathers on a white dream catcher are not pure white, although the feathers are cleaned, treated and bleached they always tend to have brownish ends and can look dirty.
