The fiber is Shetland - it has the best micro-tiny curls!!

I’ve done gnomes before a lot of whom were weezards:

But these are gnew gnomes made with armatures and stuff.
Need to buy or dye fiber for better skin tones. Was just working with what I have now.


This is Boris who sat on my work table in the old studio.

These are so much fun! The hair/beards are inspired, & I like the cross-front jacket on the taller one. :green_heart:

Phe-gnome-enal!

The dark haired one in the first picture looks like he’s wearing a Castro-style army cap. (But it looks different in the other picture. )

Most fibers can be curled by wrapping them around a wire or stick (knitting needles work great). Set with hair spray, water, or heat.

They are all so wonderful but I love the inclusive skin tones of these most recent curly-locked fellers best of all!

Thank you!! They were fun to make!

I have another finely crimped fiber that make gnome hair more like the hair on the weezards where the curl isn’t so well defined.

These were proto-types so I expect to see mice and gnome interactions eventually. :slight_smile:

Congrats, your project is featured this week!

When I’m finished squealing over those luxurious, two-toned curls, the expressive structure of their faces and perfect noses will surely need attention.
