CRAFT – Runner-up 2021

Woolen Animals 

by Pine & Ivy

Made in Didsbury

$70 to $250

Chelsea McLaughlin transforms pieces of wool into animal sculptures using a needle-felting process. She brings critters like highland cows, reindeer and field mice to life with expressive faces, big eyes and fun details like crocheted scarves. The animals sit on wooden slabs that make them easy to display.
