Introducing Morgan - a very special one-of-a-kind needle felted jester. Morgan was handcrafted by fiber artist, Caryn Burwood, of Purple Moose Felting, and is made completely from wool. He (or is it a she? Hmmm....) stands just over 15 inches tall from the bottom of his boots to the top of his jingly jester hat. For anyone not familiar with needle felting - it is a process where little bits of wool are layered and sculpted into shapes using a thin, barbed needle. There is no sewing, gluing, or stuffing - it's all done by hand via hundreds of thousands of pokes with that little barbed needle. Just as a point of reference, this doll took over 40 hours to create. He started out as little "blobs" of core fiber that were built upon, and built upon, until he began busting at the seams with personality. (Oh wait - there ARE no seams! Didn't I just say that?? haha!) Even though Morgan looks like he came straight from the Renaissance Era, he is actually a brand new doll just waiting for a home. He ultimately came to life while cruising the Caribbean (no joke...) and so he especially loves to travel. If you'd like to see a little "photo diary" of his adventures right after he was first born, check out the "Morgan Goes Cruising" album on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/purplemoosefelting No need to join Facebook to see the pix - anybody can view them! As you'll see, he's especially fond of Mai Tai's and Churros, and he also has a slight fascination with gambling... Note: Please keep in mind that "Little Morgan" is an original, one-of-a-kind art doll - he is not a "toy". Should you choose to play with him (who could resist???) please play gently! Also note... He is not a free-standing doll. With cirque-du-soleil balancing skills you MIGHT be able to get him to stand for a few seconds, but he is typically most comfortable when he can lean up against something.
