This needle felted Bunny Rabbit is one-of-a-kind and was needle felted using alpaca wool fiber. He is a mottled tannish brown color with some very ample hips, a white belly, small dark eyes, pink nose, a fluffy white tail, and holds a multi-colored felted Easter egg. He would make the perfect addition to your Easter decorations, or unique gift for someone special. Either way, this bunny is sure to make you smile!
This bunny began with a nylon knee high stuffed with alpaca fiber, then wrapped with alpaca roving. Different techniques are used for adding arms, legs, ears, tail, and facial features. The entire process involves many hours and lots of poking with a felting needle to shape and create the finished piece, kind of like sculpting, but with fiber rather than clay. Each felted piece is a labor of love.
Though soft and wonderful to touch, this felted bunny is not intended for unsupervised play. Please keep in mind this is an artist handmade collectible item.
WHAT IS NEEDLE FELTING
Needle felting is the process of using a single barbed needle to repeatedly jab alpaca/wool fibers causing the fiber to tangle and become compact in order to create a two-dimensional flat piece or three-dimensional sculpture.
