Product Description:

This Dala horse is a OOAK needle felted sculpture. The pony stands 6 inches tall, and is 6 inches long, not including the braided tail. She is made from Merino wool.

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.

This wool version is made by combining needle and wet felting, and is "painted" with wisps of merino wool. She also has a braided tail that the traditional wooden versions were lacking.
