He is needlefelted out of wool, with no wires. Needlefelting is a way of moulding wool into a firm substance by stabbing it repeatedly with a barbed needle.
He is not intended for children. Rough treatment will roughen up hairs on his surface and make him look a bit scruffy - but generally speaking this is not a fragile sculpture.
He will be sent by registered mail.
