* Gray and White Owl with Upcycled Detailed Black and Gold Button Eyes, Handmade, Crocheted


This owl was crocheted freehand and given beautiful upcycled button eyes.

The body is a mottled gray and white as two yarns were used together. The yarn is soft, rough and textured all at once and the beak is smoothly crocheted with a tailored look. The yarn is made of unknown man made fibers, most likely polyester or acrylic, and stuffed with with polyester fiber fill. The good news about man made fibers is that if needed this owl could be gently handwashed in cold water and mild detergent, lightly squeezed in a towel and then left out to air dry.

The beautifully detailed vintage feel plastic button eyes were reclaimed. The centers are shiny black and faceted surrounded by an intricate gold metallic design.

The owl measures about 3 inches by 3 inches and is very light and squeezable.
