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 Iggy Icelanderson and he is a member of the Woodland Wanderers. He is inspired by the wonderful fog and frosty mornings of the waning year. The Woodland Wanderers feature wet felted hat brims, loosely arranged banana fibre and a messy look that mimics their woodland environment. The hand felted gnome hat is a blend of baby alpaca, pale grey faux cashmere, silver merino, baby blue nettle (Ramie) fibre, grey and blue bamboo, light grey/green linen fibre, pale blue banana fibre, and silver firestar for sparkle. The hat includes a wire for gentle posing. Iggy Icelanderson sits on a 2.5 inch disk to allow free standing. As well as being adorable, Iggy is lightweight and soft to the touch.
Iggy Icelanderson is a perfect addition to your Christmas and Winter décor and sitting on a bookshelf and mantle. These gnomes make an incredible gift for your friends, family, or yourself.
