Needle Felted Mountain Goat
I love needle felting realistic looking animals! It takes anywhere from 3 to 15 hours to make an animal, depending on the size and amount of detail on it. I get my wool and other fibers for felting from local farmers. I mainly use wool for the base, and then depending on the animal, I will overlay with cashmere, alpaca, or some other animal fiber. Each animal is a unique individual, no mass production here. No two are exactly alike, even if they are the same species.
