Alpaca puppet

This is fiore, an alpaca photo I saw inspired me to sculpt her in wool. again using needlefelting. the only main difference was I used angora rabbit hair on the head and face because of its softness.

ram puppet

This is a ram head , again needlefelted all in wool. he depicts a common color scheme in the breed of sheep known as shetland.

Large puppets in the works

here is one example of my sculpture. this is my giraffe, completely sculpted with wool. I use a technique called "needlefelting" and make new puppets all the time. Soon my work may be published in a few fiber artist magazines.
