and it's a ............Unicorn
I`m very happy to have finally finished my Unicorn. I wasnt sure if she was going to be a horse for a while but when I added her mane and tail fiber which I won from http://www.etsy.com/shop/riverstonealpaca, she looked so magical she had to be a unicorn.
I`ve never worked with Alpaca fiber before and I have to say it is the most silky soft fiber I`ve even felt. Riverstone has been raising Suri Alpacas since 1999 in Ohio and sheers every April. They are gorgeous.
Hillary's fiber was used in my Unicorn. It's not as easy to needle felt as wool but the results are dramatic and perfect for the look I wanted to achieve.
