Silken Windhound is made from beautiful long Schulte mohair fabric and viscose fur. The coat has been sculpted to create the elegant silhouette of this little sighthound. The markings are hand applied fabric dye. The collar is wool felt with hand embroidered ribbon and a square, dyed, vintage mother of pearl button. It fastens with a hidden press stud. The embroidery thread is Swedish Linladan vintage linen. Legs are fully jointed with cotter pin joints and may be positioned. Eyes are traditional black glass toy eyes with wire back-loops. Her tail is wired for positioning. Filling is pure new wool.
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: 34cm 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.
