Wooly hamster and furless otter
Inspite of the generally soft alpaca. this does have a bit of VM and guard hairs and is generally hard to needle felt with out carding . I do love the baby alpaca locks but it has a bit of barn smell that I don;t think some will appreciate.....though I personally love the smell . So instead of covering with the baby alpaca I plan on using merino . Problem now is that I have no good brown colored merino because my favorite "animal color dyer" is on vacation . So....I am considering covering this "almost otter with some brightly colored merino ....maybe orange ? or perhaps I should practice a bit of patience and wait to "fur" him until I can find some nice brown ?
