This hand felted gnome is Ciaran, and is inspired by the upcoming Imbolc celebration where we begin to see the bulbs bursting from the ground and buds start to form on trees.
Ciaran the Imbolc gnome/troll/elf:
• Stands about 10.5 inches (27 cm) tall and 7 inches (18 cm) around the base including his shoes.
• He has little flesh coloured cheeks and nose under all those locks.
• His hat is made from a blend of bright green and brown merino and copper tussah silk, sparkling Angelina and bright green trilobal fibre.
• He is lightweight and soft to the touch.
His beard and hair is made from white Wensleydale locks that have been hand scoured by me using ecologically friendly and biodegradable soap. Care has been taken to use wool raised in the UK.
Each gnome is lovingly wrapped in beautiful tissue paper. He is safely placed in a thick cardboard box for their travels.
