Rafferty the Needle Felted Robin

Rafferty the Needle Felted Robin
Love this


Rafferty has a handsome red breast and a twinkle in his eyes. He has been carefully created from an initial mound of fluffy, dry wool fibres using a fine barbed felting needle to repeatedly stab them until they interlock. Over quite a bit of time this blends all the colours together beautifully giving each bird a unique plumage and personality. Rafferty would love to fly to your home to live on your tree this Christmas, but would like to point out that robins are not only for this time of year and sing very cheerfully right through the seasons, so would be equally happy to hang about on some twigs or a cupboard handle to keep you company all the time.

Rafferty has features and little wings on both sides, so doesn’t mind which way round he hangs to brighten up your home. He has an embroidery thread loop and is 1 cm thick where his wings are placed (he's slimmer elsewhere), 9 cm across from tail to the tip of his beak and about 6 cm tall, (measurements are approximate).

Please note that he is a decoration and not a toy, and should be kept out of the reach of children as his wings and thread could be hazardous if pulled away. You will receive the robin shown in the photographs, and he will be carefully wrapped and sent by First Class post.

Please be aware that screen monitor colours can vary, and that I work in a smoke free home but do have very enthusiastic cat help from time to time!


I’m often in the garden and am almost always joined by a robin companion singing loudly from one of the trees, especially if I’ve just been digging and might have revealed worms. It would be lovely if he were singing to me but I'm sure he's really telling the other robins that it's his territory!
