Beautiful for Fall or Winter this Blue Pumpkin is sure to be the highlight of any table setting! Carefully wet felted on a complex resist, the fairytale pumpkin emerges from layers of hand dyed merino, silk fiber and silk noil. The subtle blues and cool icy colors speak to me of the lovely solitude of ice castles and frozen fortresses. The silk fiber and silk noil conjure frosty blizzards and magical lands where anything is possible.
They feature a gray or brown striped stems with blue vines of spun wool over wire and white and gray bfl lamb wool locks. There is also curling twisted rustic wire strung pearl (have ivory and silver) adding charm and whimsy. These additions are secured under the stem they can be arranged how you like. The stem has a wire core and can be gently bent into position. Each pumpkin is stuffed with cluster stuff polyfil an inert and lightweight filling. Felted wool is naturally dirt and water resistant your pumpkin should only need a light dusting or the occasional vacuuming.
Larger than they look; please see the photo with my friend Inger holding my first Blue Pumpkin to gauge size. Approximately, 8” wise and 12” tall.
