Burrowing Owl

170.00

An inquisitive Burrowing Owl, handmade from soft brushed alpaca and silk wool, with carded wool stuffing and needle-felted detailing around his eyes and face. His wool-wrapped wire feet and claws are gently poseable, and he carries a uniquely numbered metal ring on his leg. 

He is about half life-size, standing 14.5 cm high by 14.5 cm long (about 5.5" x 5.5”).

This owl was inspired by Murray, a therapy owl at the charity, Hack-Back CIC (www.hack-back.org.uk). This charity helps improve the mental health and well-being of people they work with, through hands-on contact with owls and other birds of prey. For every Burrowing Owl sold, 2.5% of the proceeds will be donated to this charity to support their work. 

I hand make each Burrowing Owl individually, which usually takes 1-2 weeks. However, if your need is more urgent please contact me, as I may be able to help. 

Due to the handmade nature of each piece, your owl will look very similar to the one shown in the picture but there may be some subtle differences in expression. I am happy to send you a photograph of your owl if you require.

Your owl will arrive in a luxury white gift box (made from recycled card), nestled in tissue paper. I standardly ship all of my work by First Class Signed For post (UK) or International Tracked and Signed post (overseas). Please contact me if you would prefer a different shipping option.
