This quirky little critter is made of wool roving that has been matted down into solid felt (through needle felting techniques). The core of the owl is yarn, but its still solid enough to squeeze. He's a stylized owl with big eyes, a contrasting colored face, plus two tufted ears. His belly has an abundance of spots and scalloped feather details.
I have been honored to have one of my felted owls appear in the winter edition of Better Home and Garden "Do It Yourself" magazine in 2010.
