This animal was a challenge I put to myself at the beginning of lockdown to create a realistic hare just out of wool. A week’s worth of poking wool and he was created.
This one of a kind sculpture is needle felted using only wool and a single needle.
I primarily used Shetland Wool to create the hare but the eyes and inner ears have Merino wool needle felted in to add detail. He would look lovely sitting on a shelf, mantlepiece or table. The wood in the photo is not included but a piece can be added if you prefer. He is lovely to hold and snuggle with and therefore I have not attached him to a base. He is an art sculpture and not strong enough for children to play with. He is approximately 27 cm from ear tip to toe and about 12 cm across at his widest point.
