Needle felting is an artform using thin barbed needles to enmesh natural fibers, usually wool, until they hold the desired shape on their own. It is a time consuming process into which much patience and love is poured. The tail is also wet-felted for texture and durability. The fiber for this little critter was harvested from our own home flock of Gulf Coast Native sheep!
This Quick Mouse is about 8 inches long including the tail and about 5 inches long from nose to rump.
This doll is all wool, no wire, and so is suitable for gentle play. Because wool bits and fibers may pose a choking hazard, this doll is not recommended for children who still explore the world with their mouths.
