Needle-Felted Llama Ornament
This woolly white llama is handcrafted of soft felted roving, a richly embroidered saddle blanket, and a sleepy smile that makes him a charmer to children and adults alike.
This idea comes from our friend Manal Aman. Her cute companion is made by needle-felting. This technique involves sculpting shapes from unspun wool called roving by manipulating the fibers with a special needle until they interlock and become dense. An experienced crafter can make one of these llamas in about an hour. The main difference between this project and our other needle-felted animals is that you will skip the step of pipe-cleaner armature since this llama is meant to hang from the boughs of your Christmas tree.
