Here's an opportunity to see what can be made with raw alpaca fleece seconds. Alpaca breeder and fiber artist, Julie Verhelst, from Sunny Meade Alpacas, Ltd. will lead you in creating a unique needle felted rug to accent your home decor.
In this workshop you will be making a 23" x 30" rug from raw alpaca fiber, needle felted on to a burlap backing. The color of the rug will be what we call a "herd rug" featuring a random multi-colored fiber palette. You are welcome to bring washed raw fiber from your own herd to incorporate in to your rug as a personal touch.
No experience is required, you will be instructed on needle felting techniques and the use of the farm's needle felting machine.
