Hand knitted from a mix of pure wool, alpaca and mohair to create his realistic colouring. I have made this little barn owl by using each of these three yarn types held together and knitted as one yarn. This is a great way to change colour giving subtle realistic tones.
To give the barn owl his colouring I have used gold, beige and white wool and alpaca, with bronze, gold and cream mohair in different areas of his body.
He measures just 9 inches in height and is a one of a kind barn owl.
Please note that due to his glass eyes this little barn owl is not suitable for babies or children.
I have hand knitted this little barn owl from a pattern designed by the very talented Claire Garland, her patterns are wonderful and it is great to be able to promote her work.
