THE STORY: As I had this little squirrel perched in the tree taking pictures, my cat came running across the lawn "talking" the whole time and scolding me for not grabbing the squirrel and giving it to him. He immediately ran over to the tree and put his paws up on it and if I hadn't stopped him he would have had felted squirrel for his breakfast! I can just imagine what he was saying to me "QUICK! Grab it! What are you doing? Don't just stand there GRAB IT!! You don't have to eat it, I'll do that, for the love of all things fuzzy GRAB IT!".

HOW'S IT MADE: Butterscotch Squirrel is made from a technique called needle felting, which involves poking and prodding different colours of wool with a very sharp needle until you reach the perfect shape. It literally takes hundreds if not thousands of pokes and hours to reach just the right sculpture.

MEASUREMENTS: Even though Squirrel hardly weighs a thing she is approx. 12 cm (4.5 inches) tall. She is really cute to look at and come from a smoke free home but is not a childrens toy.

COLOURS: This Squirrel is not a typical red colour but instead she is a butterscotch colour that I hand dyed with onion skins and she has a lighter shade on her belly. Her acorn (which are firmly needle felted to her) are a dark mixed brown colour with real, very large burr oak acorn cap.

Remember different monitors may show colours slightly different then they actually are, but trust me, I've worked very hard in picking out just the right colours to bring these sculptures to life!

Listing is for felted squirrel and her attached acorns.
