We can’t get enough of Julia Power’s Needle Felting!

This August its Alpaca’s! We all love Alpacas x

The process is magic! No glue. No thread. Its mess free and super creative.

No previous experience is required and you don’t have to be a skilled crafter.

Have fun learning how to make a basic needle felted alpaca out of real alpaca wool from a local Hertfordshire farm.

The whole process will require lots and lots of stabbing with the very sharp felting needle to harden the wool.

With the aid of the various templates Julia will show you different techniques how to make the body, nose, feet and ears and tail.

Once your alpaca is assembled, you can then personalise him using a variety of different coloured felting and merino wools and you will also add glass eyes at the end to create your own little felted character.

You’ll also get to take home your special barbed needle and foam block so you can make more at home.
