Starry Alpaca, 2023

Starry Alpaca, 2023

Starry Night is iconic with its vibrant brushstrokes that create a swirling, rippling landscape. In this “painting”, Lana the traveling alpaca, explores cultures and time. She merges the worlds of Peru with her presence in visiting one of the greats. She loves connecting with people through masterpieces and her magical fleece. In Starry Alpaca, she combines Van Gogh’s despair with a promising hope for her historical Peruvian.
Due to the hand crafting process, each piece is unique with slight variations.

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, "paintings", 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 and other felting projects.
