This is Morty Morel, Gnome of the mushrooms. He is inspired by the beautiful creamy field mushrooms that dot the forest floor in the Autumn.
The hand felted gnome hat is a blend of blush pink and soft grey merino, white rose fibres, baby pink tensel, pink soya silk, white faux cashmere, peach firestar and gold Angelina fibre for sparkle. The hat includes a wire for gentle posing.
Morty sits on a 2.5 disk to allow free standing. As well as being adorable, Morty is lightweight and soft to the touch. Morty Morel is perfect for your bookshelf and mantle any time of year.
These gnomes make an incredible gift for your friends, family, or yourself. These adorable and whimsical gnome OOAK dolls and ornaments are hand felted. They are individually made from head to toe. The hats are created from wool, plant and sparkly fibres that are blended to create a unique fabric, no two are the same. I make gnomes for year-round display, as gnomes aren’t just for Christmas.
