YARN 13 - Sander the Seal

By Matt Farci

YARN 13 - Sander the Seal

Sander the grey seal is a cheeky character, whether he’s swimming along or chilling out on a sandbank. His unique texture is due to a clever technique where Furry Tales yarn is simply woven through a base of super soft Eliza stitches.
