Baby Alpaca

With the snow falling outside; I finally managed (took about 10hrs) to complete this baby Alpaca, standing only 6ins high..
Opening the nostrils and making the eyelids presented a new challenge.! and job requiring good daylight !
The white alpaca fleece felted down quite quickly, but I found it difficult to felt it fine enough for the detailed bits, so carded a merino / alpaca blend.

Today I began working with the brown fleece. Compared to the white; the brown has a softer feel to it. The colour hues are also interesting, as some of the tips have developed natural highlights.


  1. What a cutie, well done. Only ten hours eh? Keeps you out of mischief!

  2. He (or she!) is beautiful! You're so good at this! xx
