Combining two of a young child’s favorite toys: a ball and a cuddly creature, the artist behind Asher Jasper’s needle felted baby toys creates colorful companions out of a pure merino/mohair wool blend that is meticulously felted into place in “a very labor intensive process which involves taking a sharp, barbed needle and poking loose fibers thousands of times until the desired form is achieved.” At two inches in diameter, these friendly toys are the perfect size for a wee one to palm and toss in delight, or to have a ball cozying up with.
