Baxter Bunny has been firmly needle felted over a wire armature for strength and gentle posing.

I have used a mixture of wools, a natural light brown Coopworth wool for the bunny and a green Corriedale wool for his felted jacket., and a curly mohair for his tail.   He measures 6 inches from the top of his head to the tip of his tail.
He has German glass eyes and his nose and mouth are needle felted.
His white whiskers are made using hairs from a horse tail and his ”lettuce leaf”  blanket was wet felted.
