Crocodile: Felted Alpaca Sculpture

The Crocodile Felted Alpaca Sculpture, is part of our Ocean Life collection. A collection of stunning sea life animals that inhabit waters around our planet.

We love collaborating with rescues, preserves, and societies that study and protect these amazing living beings. We enjoy educating through creating them whether they're plentiful or endangered species. Each piece is original with slight variations, and all are created with love.

What Is Alpaca Fiber?

Alpaca was once considered a gift from the gods and the most important relic of Incan history. Alpacas are in the camelid family, sharing the most genetic material with the vicuña. They are one of the four South American camelids.

The two breeds of alpacas are: the Huacaya and the Suri. The types of fiber harvested from each of these breeds are equally prized for different reasons. Fiber derived from alpacas varies in weight depending on how it is spun, making it ideal for a number of different kinds of products. Compared to sheep’s wool, alpaca fiber is considerably softer, and more durable.

About Needle Felting?

Needle felting is a dry felting method typically using wool with its barbs that felt quickly and easily. However, we use alpaca for a softer and more artistic effect. Our crafters have mastered this art form and now use this media for sculptures, flat art, and clothing embellishments.

Fiber artists can needle felt for a few moments or for days at a time. This relaxing craft is now available to everyone. We offer both finished sculptures and needle felting kits. Please call us at 877-Alpacas (877-257-2228) or click here for more info on DIY projects.
