This listing is for one HUMAN-SCALE anatomical heart (the last image shows all three options available in the "Felted Curiosities" section of my shop). The fist-sized heart is a vibrant crimson with dark berry colors, as well as bright red and blue veins, plus the aorta up top. Your heart will look very similar to the one shown in the photos, some coloration may vary.
The heart is stylized and simplified - I tried to represent the various parts as best I could while staying true to the fiber material. I used a technique called needle felting to matte down dyed wool fiber until it turned into solid felt, and eventually a soft but solid mass. No sewing is involved, no glue, no hot water or knitting, just a specialized felting needle, wool roving, and lots of patience. It's a time consuming craft (this size of heart requires more than an hour to make by hand) but it's also highly addictive for me.

I do make other felted organs, but you wont always find them in my shop so please contact me about pricing and lead times for potential custom orders. To date I've been commissioned to make following: brain, lungs, intestines, stomach, kidneys, spleen, bladder, uterus, gallbladder, tonsils, and an appendix.
I've been honored to have my handmade hearts featured on Etsy Finds, www.thisiswhyimbroke.com, and part of an award winning ad campaign (Gyro Denver - 2013).
