This hand felted gnome is Floyd of the Fuchsias. He is inspired by the beautiful bright purple and pink fuchsias in my garden. His hat is a blend of fuchsia, light purple and dark purple merino wool; green recycled banana fibre; light pink silk noils; hand dyed purple and pink Wensleydale locks; light pink soya fibre, green silk; purple Angelina fibres for sparkle. His hat has as little wire inside to allow for some posing and he sits on a wood disk to allow free standing.
This gnome/tomte/troll/elf OOAK doll is perfect for your bookshelf or mantle and would make an incredible gift for your friends, family, or yourself.

Small child warning:
*Unfortunately, because of the handmade nature of the gnome, I cannot say my gnomes are safe for children. These gnomes are for decorative purposes only. Please message me if you have any concerns or questions.
**Photos have are taken in natural light. I have done my best to match the real-life colour. Monitors and phones are different, there will be some colour variation.
There is various folklore surrounding Gnomes. They are usually portrayed as small magical beings that mostly live underground. They protect Mother Nature’s animals and precious gems and metals.
Nisse/tomte are thought to bring good luck and protect the homes, animals, farms, gardens, and people that treat them nicely. Yet, they may cause mischief to those that harm them.
