This irresistible Alpaca was needle felted by Sandi Atkins in South Carolina. She sent it to us as a surprise gift from the Alpaca fibers she won during one of our recent Wooly Wednesday broadcasts, and MC-1 plus CW-1 Core Wool. We love him!

Wow — He looks so real! 🙂
“A life-size squirrel made from Living Felt wools. Core wool over a wire armature and then three different colors of Corriedale for his coat. And of course my favorite horse hair whiskers! I gave him a little wire chest loop so he can hang on a nail like this or hang on a wall like he’s climbing. A great way to display him to keep him away from the cats and dogs who are already freaking out over” there’s a squirrel in the house!”

Isn’t she a beauty?! We just love all that fluff!!
“You all are so nice and I am glad to be in this group of fiber artists …a nice break from finger stabbing ;-}. Here is a commission piece I had trouble giving up but making a new Samoyed now. This girl is made of layers of corriedale and then added fur of different specialty fiber including silk and merino.
She has glass eyes and is about 8″ tall. The core and corriedale wool is from LivingFelt.com and they also carry silk and merino fibers.”

Talk about thinking outside the box! This hat Rocks!
“I am bringing the 60’s back with my “beehive” hat!! :). It’s made from Living Felt core, the needle felting hat kit deluxe in summer and flowers, the 4 needle tool, a little bit of butterscotch Merino, and lots of flowers I had in my stock. The bees came from a get well bouquet of flowers I received from a work friend after my recent hip surgery. Does this scream Spring or what? :)”

What a handsome little bunny, don’t you want to hug him?
“Don’t let this guy in your carrot patch! LF core, the brown is alpaca with a thin layer of winter white, details and carrots MC-1 batts, and the carrot tops are locks.”
– Ruthann Brasington, South Carolina
What a bright little tribute to Alice in Wonderland!
“Here’s a little Cheshire Cat inspired by the illustration from the Peck Aubry Alice paper doll set. He’s 3 1/2″ long and 2 1/2″ high. He was mainly worked from core wool, then striped with roving. I used a reversible needle to gently, quickly pull bits along the stripes to smooth over for a more natural look.”
Melissa Hoover, California
Doesn’t this bring back memories?
Tracie Zody shared her wonderful little felted picture of Snoopy in our group and pronounced it “done” 🙂

Falkor looks so dazzling with all those beads!
“For character/ fan art, here is Falkor the luck dragon from The Neverending Story. I made this a year ago using bright white merino cross batts and a lot of beads and pearls.”
– Jenny Marion, Hawaii
We shared this lovely piece during our Wooly Wednesday broadcast earlier this week — isn’t if sweet? JoAnn always tags us on facebook with #livingfeltwool. We love seeing what she’s up to!
“Wanted to share my pincushion with this week’s themed colors! I used my own pottery base (I own MudWorks Pottery in Pennsylvania) and Living Felt’s core wool and several MC 1 preferred batts! Love your products and really love the customer service! “
