These felt animal puppets are intricately crafted using felt materials. Etsy's Two Sad Donkeys Shop creates the donkey toy marionettes that are as artful as they are adorable and also features other designs like sheep, arctic fox and unicorn figurines.

Though decorative and incredibly detailed, these felt animal puppets are also safe for kids to play with. Two Sad Donkeys Shop creates each of their farm animal toys using 100% sheep wool and hand-embroidered accents.

The figurines are crafted with a wet felting technique that relies on an intricate layering process. This process creates a layering effect of wool and yarn fragments together until a desired shape is formed. Along with wet felting, the pieces are embroidered and stuffed with wool that is added to keep their shape.
