Alpaca

The alpaca fleece is lovely to felt with, silky almost soapy

Although the girls who donated the fleece to me were shorn when I was them I made my little fuzzy in full coat

To do that I firmly felted a short alpaca then added fleece ontop of that and softly felted it to give him his teddy bear coat, but a 'crust' of fibers needle felted ontop to keep him in shape. He feels lovely to hold, solid in the middle but sooooo soft and fluffy on the outside
