These adorable and whimsical gnome OOAK dolls and ornaments are hand felted. They are individually made from head to toe. The hats are created from wool, plant and sparkly fibres that are blended to create a unique fabric, no two are the same. I make gnomes for year-round display, as gnomes aren’t just for Christmas.
This is Hedley of the Hedgerow. He is inspired by the beautiful British hedgerow in Autumn. The hand felted gnome hat is a blend of maroon and evergreen merino, olive and red tussah silk noil, peach bamboo, mint soya silk, light green and red linen, orange and gold firestar for sparkle. The brim of his hat has been hand felted giving it a lightweight, airy look. The hat includes a wire for gentle posing. Hedley sits on a 3.5 inch disk to allow free standing. As well as being adorable, Hedley is lightweight and soft to the touch.
Hedley Hedgerow is perfect for your bookshelf and mantle and Christmas display. These gnomes make an incredible gift for your friends, family, or yourself.
