Have I been naughty this year? I made another Needlefelted Santa Claus this week, but he is insisting that I find him a new home! Hmmph!
I made Santa from 100% wool (mostly alpaca) by a technique called needle felting, which involves poking and prodding different colours of wool with a very (and I mean very) sharp needle until the perfect results are formed. I also hand dyed the red in his suit.
Santa stands at 21 cm tall or 8 inches.
