Utopian Alpacas

How it's made
Stage 1

I get the fleece- that has been washed and carded or even when it has been shawn straight off the alpaca- roll tight so I can then needle felt it into a semi solid shape.

Stage 2

Once needle felted I use water and soap to wet felt the fleece to create a tight and solid shape. Then I allow it to try so I can then finally needle felt it into the desired shape.

The time it takes depends on size but on average it can take 1 hour to carry out the process of needle and wet felting with drying time of 24hours before finally completing the jewellery item.
