This turtle is made of wool, grown here on my farm and hand washed, dyed, carded and felted by myself. The shell is a random mix of colours and no two will ever be the same. It is about 4 inches long from the tip of its nose as it sits on my wrist and made almost entirely of wool. There is an elastic loop to fit around your wrist to keep your pins handy and the eyes are glass beads. The elastic is stitched with sewing thread easily removed to sit on your sewing table or a shelf as an ornament. It can be gently played with and hand washed although it is not intended as a toy and not recommended for a small child due to the glass bead eyes. There are no wires inside and the legs are flexible but not poseable. The 'shell' is deep enough to accommodate a regular size pin without going all the way through to prick you. I remember having a tomato wrist pincushion in sewing class a lot of years ago. It was a handy thing for me and I hope this will be for you too. The wool will protect the point of your needles and pins, a natural alternative to the masses. A very unique gift for a crafter and sewer.
