Dyed unspun sheep's wool, also known as magic wool, is the perfect material to craft an enchanting collection of miniature fruit children, which can be enjoyed by adults and children alike and are perfect for a nature corner or seasonal table.

Christine Schäfer, author of Magic Wool Fairies, includes detailed instructions on how to create fruits for every season -- berries, acorns, apples, plums, mandarins, toadstools, pumpkins -- and delightful little people to match.

This book provides step-by-step instructions, colour photographs and diagrams, which clearly show the reader how to make figures and objects of varying complexity.
