"I like it in here" long-tailed tit picture

592.00

Two long-tailed tit babies have fledged from their cosy nest - but the third one likes it where he is! Mum sits on the top of the mossy nest, encouraging him to leave.

The birds are crocheted from soft alpaca, mohair and silk yarns and (with the exception of the baby in the nest) carry uniquely numbered rings on their legs, which authenticate the work.

The nest is crocheted from mohair and silk yarn with real preserved moss and sheep's fleece incorporated into it during making, to resemble the real thing. The branches are wool-wrapped wire, adorned with felted wool leaves and crocheted hawthorn flowers.

The whole artwork is mounted inside a wooden wool-wrapped ring, with a small metal loop at the top so that it can be hung on a wall. The work measures about 33 cm diameter (13"), and extends about 10 cm (4") from the wall. 

This unique, one-off piece is ready for immediate dispatch and will be sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery (UK) or International Tracked and Signed (overseas). If ordering from overseas, please check your country's import regulations, as this piece contains real preserved moss and unspun sheep's fleece. Buyers are responsible for import taxes into their country.
