Make these gorgeous little woollen hearts and use them as festive decorations on the Christmas tree, around the house or as small appreciative gifts for loved ones throughout the year.
The hearts are knitted in 100% wool, stuffed, sewn together and felted in the washing machine to give them their comforting round and cute shape.
approx 5×5 cm (2×2 inches)
