Maine Needlefelted Shepherd with Hat, Greying Beard, and Staff (Close Up)

Maine Needlefelted Shepherd with Hat, Greying Beard, and Staff (Close Up)

Figures of man, woman, and baby made entirely from wool in Maine. A technique, called needle felting, is often used to make small objects or people from wool. The male doll is holding a stick for a staff, and has a beard. The woman has a scarf on her head, covering her brown wool hair. The baby has yellow hair and is wrapped in a blue blanket. The figures were purchased at the Done Roving Farm & Carding Mill, 20 Charlotte Road, Charlotte, Maine. The figure is 6 inches (15 cm) tall.
