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 Thornton, Wizard of the Thistle. He is inspired by The beautiful but prickly, purple thistle. The hand felted gnome hat is a blend of purple merino, jade tussah silk noil, olive bamboo fibre, brown banana fibre and iridescent Angelina fibre. His Witch’s hat brim is wet felted in a messy style. The hat includes a wire for gentle posing. Thornton sits on a handmade, 5 inch willow broomstick with corn silk bristles. He is not free standing but sports a long line for hanging on a Halloween tree or from your window frame. As well as being adorable, Thornton is lightweight and soft to the touch.
Thornton, Wizard of the Thistle is perfect for your Halloween décor, bookshelf and window frame.
These gnomes make an incredible gift for your friends, family, or yourself.
