This Catholic priest figurine is a nice Christian decor or collectible. You can use it as a part of religious scene or give it as a unique gift to your favourite priest. Especially, it will be a perfect Holy Orders gift for a man who begins his service. This clergy statue can be also used as an educational aid in church schools.
This felted priest is wearing traditional black cassock and has a purple stole on his shoulders. His head is covered with a square cap, so-called biretta. His mission is to preach the word of God and that is why he is holding the Holy Bible in his right hand. A design of this Catholic priest figurine is pretty simple. It is similar to Waldorf figurines with no facial expression and just a few details. I make it by hand in felting technique. It consists of soft and durable merino wool and is decorated with glass beads and golden thread. All of its props are attached properly. It is also stuffed which makes it stable and easy to put on a shelf or desk.
I make this priest statue to order with attention to details. It is meant for religious people, for those who need a gift for a priest and for those who just want to decorate their room or office with Catholic decor. If any of these applies to you, you will like this priest figure for sure.

How to care about felted handicraftMerino does not need to be washed as often as other types of wool. However, you may want to refresh it from time to time. Felted accessories and jewelry keep their colors and shape if hand washed gently in warm water. Here is a detailed instruction on how to care about them (we enclose it in every shipment as well):
- Wash your felt handicraft manually at about 30 Celsjus degrees using washing agents for wool.
- Dip them gently, but do not rub - otherwise they may shrink or deform.
- After washing, rinse your felt item with water of the same temperature, preferably with a rinsing liquid for wool.
- Do not wring or twist felt - remove the excess water with your hands using a towel.
- Spread out washed accessories on a towel to let them dry.
- If necessary iron your felt item using 'wool' mode or applying a low temperature.
