Needle Felted Bears

I’ll be teaching two Needle Felted Bear Classes this weekend. For those of you attending, or trying this at home, I’ve put together a Pinterest Board with lots of inspiration for you!  There are bears of all shapes and sizes and colors and breeds, felted by many talented felting artists.  You can keep it simple but making a roundish shape, adding some bears, a face, and a little bear muzzle, or spend more time adding legs and feet, and feet pads, even clothing and accessories.


 

for those that live nearby, be sure to check out the classes at Alpaca Meadows.  For online classes, be sure and check out the wide selection of Craftsy classes available on our website.  You might also be interested in our Needle Felt An Animal Friend Kit by Back to Back Alpaca.

Yards Per Ounce Calculations – Alpaca Yarn Company

I wish I would have written down how much yarn it took to make that …
Resolved to get better at keeping records, I’m adding this post to my blog for your reference and mine!

Alpaca Cowl Neck Warmer

 Using the formula from my previous post on Figuring the Yardage Used in A Finished Project,  I have come up with the following calculations for each line of yarn from The Alpaca Yarn Company.  Figuring the yardage used in a finished project made from any of these yarns, can be found by multiplying the weight of the item times the yards per ounce of that yarn.

Astral Yarn

Astral – Alpaca Blend Yarn
197 yards in a 3.5 ounce (100g) skein = 56 yards per ounce

Paca de Seda Yarn

Paca de Seda – Alpaca Blend Yarn
91 yards in a 1.76 ounce (50g) skein = 52 yards per ounce

Paca Peds Yarn

Paca Peds – Alpaca Blend Sock Yarn
360 yards in a 3.5 ounce (100g) skein = 103 yards per ounce

Paca Paints Yarn

Paca Paints – Alpaca Yarn
220 yards in a 3.5 ounce (100g) skein = 63 yards per ounce

Snuggle Yarn

Snuggle – Alpaca Blend Yarn
104 yards in a 3.5 ounce (100g) skein = 29.71 yards per ounce

Suri Elegance Yarn

Suri Elegance – Suri Alpaca Yarn
875 yards in a 3.5 ounce (100g) skein = 250 yards per ounce

Swizzle Alpaca Yarn

Swizzle – Alpaca Yarn
215 yards in a 3.5 ounce (100g) skein = 61 yards per ounce

I am in the process of creating Pinterest boards for each yarn, with links to FREE patterns for each and yardage required!  Be sure to check back!
