I would like to introduce you to a gorgeous needle felted guinea pig called ‘Teddy’.
As you can see he has a cheeky little face and I really tried to make sure his autumnal orange fur tones ended up looking as fluffy and soft as possible just like a real guinea pig.
He is now on his way to France to live with a lovely lady who will take good care of him.
Bon Voyage little guinea pig! You were a pleasure to create and I hope you have a wonderful life at your new furever home x
His core is made of natural undyed Corriedale wool from New Zealand. His beautiful soft fur and detail on his cute piggy paws, ears and face are of soft merino wool (non-mulesed) from South Africa (Cape). His toes have been sculpted by wool wrapped delicately onto wire.
His eyes are made of wool too, so no glass or plastic.
You can see he is life-sized from the close up of me holding him in my hand.
Hope you like him 🙂
