New Papa *" Felted Alpaca
This fabulous Papa Alpaca Fiber Sculpture is made entirely by hand, and proudly stands 8 inches tall. Each little face is sewn and created with love. He comes in rich natural colors that reflect a small portion of his vast color scheme in nature. In addition, we have added brilliant colors which we dye by hand in small batches to attain intense hues. Just like the live animals, these little ones do well in herds. The custom hats are hand knit especially for our little friends, complete with ear holes, and sold separately. Due to the hand crafting process, each Papa is unique with slight variations.
About Needle Felting?
Needle felting is a dry felting method typically using wool with its barbs that felt quickly and easily. However, we use alpaca for a softer and more artistic effect. Our crafters have mastered this art form and now use this media for sculptures, flat art, and clothing embellishments.
Fiber artists can needle felt for a few moments or for days at a time. This relaxing craft is now available to everyone. We offer both finished sculptures and needle felting kits.
