Roar a big Hello to Dandy Lion

This adorable needle-felted-wool Dandy Lion is a one-of-a-kind piece of art!

The sculpture is created from 100% local + organic merino wool, in northern Rwanda; the wool is naturally hand-dyed using onionskins! And, the merino wool they use is from their own flocks of sheep! (The sheep receive meticulous 24-hour care so they will be healthy and continue producing top quality wool).

    Dandy Lion is made by young deaf women in Rwanda; creating these wool sculptures provides a dignified, purposeful employment for them. As they receive above fair trade wages for their skilled work, they are enabled to live a better life.  

    • Approximately 7-8" long x 3" wide x 4.5- 5" tall
    • 100% organic merino wool
    • A hefty, solid sculpture!
    • Not intended to be a toy
