Set of 3 Needle felted Christmas Tomten, swedish gnomes, wool felted, gift, decoration, nisse, tomte, christmas gift, gonk
Materials: pure wool, silver bell, wire, wooden disc
I call this group "A Plot of Christmas Gnomes" because they look like they're planning a lovely surprise perhaps?
As photographed (with curly hat) 4.5ins/11cms
With hat straight: 6ins/15cms approx
They're needle felted with 5 types of pure wool, (2 main colours are red and a charcoal grey blend), and have tiny jingle bells on their hats.... to bring warmth and cheer for the Christmas season.
The spiral of their hats are wired inside, so you can hang them on trees, or point them straight up, hook them onto anything you like, they won't mind a bit!
Their round wood bases means that if you feed them some Christmas tipple they won't ever topple over. :)
I've bundled them into generous sets of 3 to save you money, and because one (or even two) of these friendly fellas is just not enough.
Place them anywhere around your house or office workspace, or give them away as cute, handmade stocking stuffers.
(Tip! Rub a little of your fav essential oil on the wooden base, place them on a radiator, or warm place, for a lovely aroma around the home)

FROM CLASSIC LITERATURE
A nisse (usually Norwegian) and a tomten (usually Swedish) are similar characters. They are both solitary, mischievous domestic sprites responsible for the protection and welfare of the farmstead and its buildings. Tomten literally means “homestead man” and is derived from the word tomt which means homestead or building lot. Nisse is derived from the name Nils which is the Scandinavian form of Nicholas.
Final verse of the poem
The Christmas Tomten
by Abraham Viktor Rydberg
Midwinter's nightly frost is hard
Brightly the stars are beaming
Fast asleep is the lonely yard
All, till morn will be dreaming.
Faint is the moon; and snow-drifts shine,
Gistening white on fir and pine,
Covers on rooflets making.
None but tomten is waking.
(1828 – 1895)
