This hand felted gnome is Wally Waxwing, and is inspired by the beautiful Waxwing Bird. Wally’s hat is a blend of soft 21 micron merino fibres in grey, gold and orange; black and peach bamboo; yellow linen; gold and white firestar. The brim was wet felted to create a messy look. Wally Waxwing is free standing. He sits on a wooden disk and has a small wire in his hat for a small amount of posing. He is 10 inches tall. Wally Waxwing is perfect for your bookshelf or mantle and would make an incredible gift for your friends, family, or yourself.

His beard and hair is made from hand dyed Blue Faced Leister 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.
He has little flesh coloured cheeks and a nose under all those locks.
He stands about 10 inches tall and 6 inches around the base including his shoes.
He is lightweight and soft to the touch.
