Handmade Wool Robin Christmas Decoration
Festive robin decorations lovingly handmade from needle felted wool. These round little robins are looking for a new home to cosy up in this winter. They would feel very at home perched upon a Christmas tree branch over the festive season. Each robin is made from needle felted wool from my flock of sheep with moldable copper wire legs securely attached. They are each presented in a simple card gift box – a perfect present for someone or perhaps for yourself! Made from just wool and wire they are completely natural, biodegradable, kind to sheep and the planet.
The price is for 1 robin the same or very similar to those in the photos. As each is handmade no two are ever exactly the same they may vary slightly in shape and size but are all equally beautiful. They come in two different colours – grey with a red beast and brown with an orange breast. Please select which colour you would like from the menu.
The robins are made from all-natural wool from my flock, the only part which is not wool is the copper wire that forms the bendable legs. The sheep who provided the wool are in the photos. The brown robins are made using Pips natural brown fleece and the grey robins and the beaks are made from natural grey wool from Sandy (who sadly passed away this year). The red and orange wool is dyed wool from Mango.
Size – Robins measures approx 5.5-6cm beak to tail and approx 3-4.5 cm high. They have a round-ish shape. Total height with legs is approx 6-7cm
All my needle felted items are very solidly felted with carefully added details. As such, each takes a very long time to make, the robins each take around 2 hours to make at the felting stage. That is not including the time spent shearing the sheep, washing the wool, carding, dyeing or spinning the little legs!
Please note – This is NOT a toy. It has been created for display and decoration purposes only. It is made from small needle felted wool pieces and hairy textured wool so could pose a hazard for babies or small children. Please do not give to children under 3 years old.
I always make every effort to show the true colours of items in my photos and website photos are never enhanced but sometimes colours may vary due to different monitor settings and lighting.

We keep a well-loved, high welfare flock of pet and rescue sheep on the Llyn Peninsular in North Wales. Our sheep are a part of the family and each is known by name. All our wool and makes are vegetarian-friendly as we do not breed or sell sheep for the meat market and our sheep live out their natural lives with us. I am a full-time mum and shepherdess. In my (none existent!) free time I make things from wool from the sheep in order to sustain them.
