Needle Felted Art Doll: Bunny Pierrot #8 - Pink-eyed Stoplight Lop [6 inches tall, 100% Wool]
This art doll was completed in June of 2022 and is made entirely of wool (domestically sourced), with a shape inspired by the magnificent Fat-Tailed Sheep.
Needle felting is a very slow and laborious process, especially when you are working with very soft, fine, fibers like Merino - this piece took around a day and a half to complete.
The process ends with burning away most of the loose hairs with a hot metal rod, which results in a smooth but still soft and fuzzy finish.
Material: Merino wool, in natural undyed white, light pink, yellow, and mint green.
Process: Needle felted.
Ruff: 2 inches. Can be rotated but not removed.
Size: 6 inches tall
Care and Keeping:
Needle-felted works are very sturdy in many ways, but quite delicate in others! Please read on to find out how to keep your new piece in the best condition possible.
Spot clean only, please!
Washing machines will cause irreparable changes to the fibers.
Be wary of pets!
Many a good art doll has been mailed in for repairs after being snagged by a dog or cat.
Best if kept away from backpacks, dirt, etc
