Hope Hippo Ornament

Hello, Hope Hippo!

Hope is the latest member of the Handspun Hope felted sculptures, handcrafted by women working for above fair wages in northern Rwanda. Created one at a time from 100% organic merino wool and hand-dyed with avocado stones. This felted sweetheart is a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Hope and our other sculptures allow us to give dignified employment to young deaf women in northern Rwanda.  

  • Approximately 6" long x 2" wide x 3.5" tall
  • 100% organic merino wool
  • Not intended to be a toy

Our sheep receive meticulous 24-hour care so they will continue producing quality fleeces for the ladies working for Handspun Hope.
