Mouse Super: Felted WoolPaca Sculpture

The Mouse Super: Felted WoolPaca Sculpture is an adorable little guy from our Character collection. This is a creative group of individuals that captures the real personality of each little guy through the meticulous details of his or her attire. A true hand made keepsake for a special gift or your personal collection. Each one proudly stands a few inches tall and is finished with a loop to hang. The movable armatures may be gently posed for your preference. We use deliciously soft and natural fibers that are dyed by hand in small batches. Due to the hand crafting process, 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.
