Clarence measures 24 cm high and 44 cm long when completed in DK yarn. He has large clawed
feet, a beautiful fanned collar and an arrow tail. He has a superb bobbly coat and ribbed wings. He
even has smoke coming out of his nostrils! In the depths of his dark cave Clarence daydreams of
the mighty Welsh Kings of Aberffraw who in the 5th century loved dragons. We hope you will love
him too.
