My Little Gnomes are made of recycled, upcycled felted wool sweaters by Native Wampanoag Grandmother, Michelle Reid. Faeries live among and protect the flowers. Gnomes are the "Little People" who live out with the trees as Guardians of the Forest. Each one is different, and one-of-a-kind. Color availability is determined by the artist's current recycling efforts.
Popular as Waldorf Gnomes, these Guardians are wonderful for children's bedsides, school bags, sleep overs, and castle play. Let your child's imagination fly! Each Gnome comes with a pocket for objects like newly lost teeth, and if you are very, very lucky, some come with a magical piece of sea glass or crystal.
