This is so realistic! Well done!
What type of wool do you use, is it pure merino? And where did you get his eyes?

Thank you for your kind comments! I used alpaca for this guy- I got the fiber from Northstar Alpacas on Etsy. I get the eyes from GlassEyesOnline.

Hi there, thanks for your kind comment. I've been felting for about 1 year now. I think you'll find it to be a really forgiving art form- this is probably why I've stuck with it! Happy felting!

Thank you! This guy took quite awhile, maybe 10-15 hours? It's hard to judge because I usually felt a little bit at a time each evening.

What creeps me out about this is that it looks like my dog and because I know it isn't alive I feel like it's stuffed. Like it's a stuffed version of my dog. ; ^ ;' -shudders and runs and hugs my dog-


Gratsies on the DD, well deserved! If it's well made enough that it creeps me out because a part of me feels like it's real... then you deserve the DD! ; U ;
