MATERIALS AND TOOLS

✓ Main yarn – I used approximately 50 g of grey “Khlopok Travka” by Kamteks (65% cotton, 35% polyamide) that has approximately 220 m in a 100 g skein).
Tip: You can use any moderately fluffy yarn (wool, acrylic, etc). The thicker the yarn, the bigger your toy will be. See the gauge section. If you need exactly the same yarn visit this shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/LittleOwlsHutRUSSIAN
✓ Additional yarn for the ears and tail – I used beige mohair yarn that has 175 m in a 50 g skein. See the gauge section to check if you chose the correct yarn weight.

✓ Strong black thread to needle sculpt the mouth.
✓ Strong thread of matching colors for needle sculpting.
✓ White thread to make the spot of light on the eyes.
