You are looking at an artist-made, ONE-OF-A-KIND animal sculpture.

I crafted this BABY SABLE FERRET entirely by hand, using no kits, molds, or patterns. I create each of my designs by looking at real animals, studying pet or wildlife photographs, then adding a touch of whimsy and imagination. Each one is unique and there will never be another one just like it!

This cute and realistic little ferret is crafted from 100% wool. (The only non-wool items used are two flexible wires which add stability and support inside the legs. Of course the wires are completely covered and not visible.) The the dark brown portions are made from an extra-soft, undyed brown wool. The facial details, paw pads, toes and claws are made from various colors of fine and extra-fine merino.

Make sure you check out all the full-size pictures -- you'll want a close look at the ears, eyes, nose, and feet!

I think this little guy is one of the most realistic animals I've made. He's even about the same size as a real baby ferret! He has a lot of careful color blending, fine sculpting, and detail work on his head and face. He also has individuated toes on every paw, complete with little pink pads and tiny toenails. All of this detail is lovingly, painstakingly created with very small pieces of wool and a super-fine felting needle, which takes many, many hours of work!

ALL DETAILS ARE NEEDLE-SCULPTED FROM COLORED WOOL -- NOTHING IS DRAWN, PAINTED, AIR-BRUSHED, GLUED, STITCHED, OR SEWN!

This sable ferret is firmly sculpted. This means the wool is worked extensively with felting needles until the fibers form a tightly compressed, solid object. Consequently, the surface is soft, but the sculpture isn't squishy like the average plush toy or beanie. This construction allows me to shape the features with great precision -- and it also means your collectible work of art will retain its shape and features for years to come!

*
The ferret is approximately 3.75 inches tall.
*
He's about 6 inches long from head to rump.
*
His tail, which curls to the side, is about 2.75 inches.

A unique gift for that special someone...or just for you!
