This blue Dala horse is a OOAK needle felted sculpture. The pony stands 5 inches tall, and is 5 inches long, not including the braided tail. She is made from Merino wool dyed in shades of blue, green, white, and gold. She would make a perfect gift for a new baby's room.
A Dalecarlian horse or Dala horse (Swedish: Dalahäst) is a traditional carved, painted wooden horse statuette originating in Swedish province Dalarna. In the old days the Dala horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna, as well as Sweden in general. These charming little horses were made from scraps of wood left over from the clock case industry.
