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?

MEASUREMENTS:
As photographed (with curly hat) 6.5ins/16cms
With hat straight: 8ins/20cms approx

They're needle felted with 5 types of pure wool, (2 main colours are red and a charcoal grey blend), and have tiny silver 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)
(Listing doesn't include white felt pine tree in background)
Enjoy!

MULTIPLE ORDERS?
Please note, refunds for shipping will be given to multiple orders to the same address, since I can pack these little gems into one package.


NEED A DIFFERENT COLOUR PERHAPS?
I have a large stash of wool in my studio so please do ask if you'd like a different colour combination. Let me know when you place your order, I'll see what I can do for you.

THE DETAILS
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)
