making felt

Currently: skirting, washing, carding raw fleece...Listening to Edvard Grieg
I have just started trying to make my own felt from Alpaca fleece (my sister has an alpaca farm)
The first batch i made was using black fleece and i had begun to make a damaged deer toy from it, but my dogs destroyed the toy and the majority of the reamaining black felt!
This is Goran, i managed to salvage him. As yet his leg stump wounds are not in place. I won't sell Goran because of his poor condition, however i have made more felt...

This is made from Seamus's first fleece, and will be used for a damaged deer toy.
