Purple Polarbear for Shepherd's Harvest
Polar bears are one of my all time favorite animals . This one is has a firmly felted body of Romney and over laid with several layers of marino . I wanted to try and new technique to get a shaggy, furry look and did his fur by layering one inch pieces of fiber from the back and bottom up and forward so that each layer over laps but has some lose ends just anchored at the root . I like the look and the several different lavender shades . Down side....it take forever to do and loses some of the detailing that I spent hours adding to the body..upside...lots of ,shaggy goodness .
