Shipping calculated at checkout.
Introducing Reagan - a very special one-of-a-kind needle felted jester. Reagan was handcrafted by fiber artist, Caryn Burwood, of Purple Moose Felting, and is made completely from wool. He stands just over 16 inches tall from the bottom of his wintery boots to the top of his wooly jester hat - and he is looking for a home. He is finished and is ready to ship now. 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 approximately 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!) Reagan is a REAL woodland Jester. When he's not posing for photos, you can find him hanging out in the forest, plucking up mushrooms, and chatting with all the critters. Just one look at his sweet little face, and you'll know that he's got a good heart and he's all about having fun! Note: Please keep in mind that "Little Reagan" 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 (as I did, for his photo shoot), but he is typically most comfortable when propped up against something so that he doesn't have to worry about doing a "face plant". (Trust me, it wouldn't be his first...)
