I try to find a use for every grade of alpaca fiber, even short fiber or more robust fiber from older alpacas. Alpaca Fiber Wreaths are my latest idea. Find out how!
Recently I had a special order for one of these wreaths and the customer wanted “peacock colors”.
I started by gathering together small amounts of my previously dyed fiber, in colors that I thought resembled a peacock.
Using glue in a shallow plastic dish, I dipped small bunches of fiber into the glue.
With a nail punch (any pokey thing would work, a pencil for instance), I poked the fiber down into the grapevine wreath. Very easy to make!
Voila’, the finished project!
