HOW IT'S MADE: Camel is made from a technique called needle felting, which involves poking and prodding different colours of wool with a extremely sharp barbed needle until you reach the perfect shape. It literally takes thousands of pokes and days and days to create a sculpture of this size. The Camel has a wire frame making him completely free standing. He also has antique bronze chains that are needle felted into his harness.
MEASUREMENTS: Even though he hardly weighs a thing, he is approx. 20 cm (8 inches) tall and 23 cm (9 inches) long. He is cute to look at, and comes from a smoke free home, but is not a children's toy.
COLOUR: The Camel is a golden brown colour, maybe best described as a butterscotch colour, (which I hand dyed myself) with a mixed dark brown pillow and reins. His blankets and tassels are various shades of purple, mauve and pink. Please remember different monitors may show colours slightly different then they actually are, but trust me, I've worked very hard in picking out just the right colours to bring these sculptures to life!
