Outside pic 2 -- This is my needle felted Lord of the Rings, Gandalf, (Sir Ian McKellen style) plush doll FeltLing. He is approximately 20" tall, stands freely and is a sturdy, heavier doll.
He is 100% needle felted wool -- NO sewing, NO glue... even his hair is raw wool that has been painstakingly needle felted onto him (his locks are from a Navajo Churro ewe and his facial hair is Shetland wool that still has a bit of lanolin in it)... His clothing is hand dyed prefelt wool so it has a natural drape to it.
I can't even begin to count the hours I have in this FeltLing... I hope he makes you smile.
