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 Brizby Maplewood. He is inspired by the changing Autumn trees. The hand felted gnome hat is a blend of burgundy, gold, olive and mallard green merino; olive and red hemp fibres, olive tussah silk noil; green wensleydale locks; gold, deep green and burgundy firestar for sparkle. The hat includes a wire for gentle posing and a line for hanging. Brizby Maplewood sits on a 1 inch disk to allow free standing. As well as being adorable, Brizby Maplewood is lightweight and soft to the touch.
Brizby Maplewood is perfect for your Christmas tree, bookshelf and mantle These gnomes make an incredible gift for your friends, family, or yourself.
