Sorry, this item sold. Have feltersjourney make something just for you, or try these other items:
She has been seamlessly wetfelted in the shape that she is (no knitting or sewing). I felted her from merino and Norwegian wool fibres in natural white and added Bluefaced Leicester, Black Lincoln & Leicester Longwool curly locks to the top layer to give her a lovely wooly appearance.
Around the very bottom of the cosy I added green wool fibres, curly locks, yarn, silk caps and fibres to represent grass... Baaarbara is in a wildflower meadow. Afterwards I hand embroidered clumps of wildflowers around the bottom.
Baaarbaras head is stuffed to keep it in shape. I filled a calico pouch with polyfibre stuffing and inserted it into the headspace before sewing on ears and a couple of french knot eyes, then I needle felted her curly hair-do in place.
When laid flat she measures 25cm from nose to tail. (Internal area approx 20cm front to back)
19cm tall to the top of her back (internally 18cm high).
Wool is a natural insulator. Another benefit of the cosy being felted as firmly as it is, its pretty water repellant so tea sploshes can be blotted straight off.
Easy to care for:
Wool felt is naturally dirt & odour repellant & doesnt require washing very often anyway.. If he does need a wash, I recomend handwashing. Although he is very well felted and not likely to shrink, you dont want to lose the definition of the sewn on eyes & ears or his curly lock hairdo, which is needlefelted onto his head - so stick with gentle handwashing in handwarm water & woolwash/shampoo. Rinse. Blot between 2 towels to remove excess water. Reshape & dry naturally (standing on a radiator works well - you must be sure that his head is dry all the way through).
Care leaflet will be included.
