Here is a close up view of the fiber that will be the base body of our little wild forest hare....this is 100% down wool.
The next picture shows the fiber that will be hand carded to make a lovely blend of camel colors for a warm coat. This is 100% New Zealand Corridale wool.
And here is our beautiful white Corridale wool that will be on our bunny's face and belly - and that, my friends, is the felting needle that will make all the magic happen.
And now here we go, beginning the body. I am using a multi-needle tool here to quickly build the dense body. I am working with the down wool here, and using a foam pillow in my lap to protect myself from needle sticks. :):)
More to come soon - I am ------- off to create!
