Lupo the Stuffed Animal

176/365: Lupo

He doesn’t look like but actually Lupo is a wolf! OK – a wolf in sheep’s clothing and that’s what happened: When Lupo was a puppy, he had a great passion for hand-knitted sheep wool socks. One night he tried to shave a sleeping sheep on the meadow to raise some wool for extra socks. The frightened sheep bite Lupo by accident and since then every full moon he turns into a lamb. As time went by he realized that he so much more preferred to be a sheep than a wolf (because his fur is so much softer than the shaggy wolf fur and he had decided to become a vegetarian anyway). So he took the decision to knit himself a cozy lamb costume from his own full moon sheep wool and life his life as a sheep from now on. Every full moon he takes the chance to shear his fur and to knit his costume in the phase until next full moon. Unfortunately, when he’s a weresheep he tended to unravel his knitting, so it took a very long time until Lupo the wolf became Lupo the sheep.

Made by Gwenn and given to me as a gift.  Lupo is made out of 100% wool.
