This cheery yellow Spring Chick was needle felted using alpaca wool fiber. Each baby chicken is crafted from beautifully dyed and hand-carded roving that is a blend of alpaca and sheep's wool. All but the chick's legs are made of 100% fiber. The spindly little chick legs are wire with roving delicately wrapped and needle felted. This chick would make the perfect addition to your Spring decorations, or unique gift for someone special!
Seated, this chick measures not quite 6" tall.
Needle felting is the process of repeatedly pushing a barbed needle into a tuft of fiber, agitating, compressing, and locking the fiber together into a more dense mass of fiber. Needle felted creations take many hours of felting to complete and each felted piece is a labor of love.
Though soft and wonderful to touch, please handle this wool sculpture with care. It is not meant as a toy and may be a choking hazard for small children.
