The Old Man of the Woods is a wonderful needle felted Forest Spirit. Felted with fine gray and silver wool locks over soft wool roving, he has a wire armature with pose-able arms and hands. He walks with a gnarled wooden staff as he makes his way through the Northern forests. At least a century old, he is a little long in the tooth and gray of beard, but plans to stick around for at least another 100 years!

Standing at 8 1/2 inches tall, The Olld Man of the Woods will come in a nice box for easy storage and gift giving.
