Father Christmas

This doll is Father Christmas. He is rather big and he is ment to hang on the wall or in a window where he spreads a real good Christmas atmosphere. He can also hang on a sheepskin and the skin will then look like it is his body.

I have used what I call aquarelle technique for him and that means that I use a lot of different colors of wool that I have rainbow dyed myself. First I needle a neutral background and on that I needle the face step by step by taking little dots of wool and needle it for a face like I would use a brush. Then I use specially chosen white wool for the hair and the beard and this wool I got from a good friend in Switzerland.

He is 45 cm tall
