Inspired by my art club friends I’ve begun exploring the fantastic new media of needle-felting! The idea is by using a very sharp needle with tiny barbs on the end you sort ‘weave’ together wool fibers.
Here I’ve used a lamb’s wool internal ball with an overlay of hand dyed alpaca ‘roving’. The alpaca is so very soft and nice to work with. You’ve got to be careful with the needles though – I accidentally got myself a couple of times!
I bought hand blown glass eyes from a supplier on Etsy. I intend to experiment some more with these in the coming weeks!
Pictured is my kitty having a look at the first attempt.
