Whippets are made from a beautiful short, dense mohair fabric with hand-applied brindle markings. The parti-white dog has white viscose fur with inset mohair patches. Mouth, nose and whisker dimples are hand stitched in grey DMC embroidery silk. Eyes are traditional black glass. Legs are fully jointed and may be positioned. The collar is blue 100% wool felt with an appliqué ribbon, hand embroidered in silver thread, and closing with a vintage toy buckle. Filling is pure new wool with wire leg armature and fine glass bead for weight.
I sew all my toy dogs by hand, with a few seams completed on my vintage Bernina sewing machine. They are made with great care using traditional techniques. All my toys are finished with an individual sewn in tag authenticating each one as a genuine 'Little Toy Dog'.
Measurements: 25cm nose to tail, 20cm feet to top of head when standing.
My dogs are not suitable for children under 14 years and are intended as collectable pieces for older children and adults.
All toys are gift wrapped in brown presentation boxes lined with acid free tissue paper. The box has a white grossgrain ribbon tab and a magnetic closure. There is a separate outer corrugated cardboard box for posting. All dogs are sent insured and tracked by Special Delivery in the UK, and Tracked and Signed for International deliveries.
