Well what a busy couple of months we've had here at Knit2Felt! We've been to the fantastic Bakewell Wool Gathering and The Nottingham Yarn Expo as well as getting ready for more shows in the run up to Christmas including the Etsy Local Market in Manchester coming up on the 1-3rd December..... Phew!!
But what we are all about is creating and this latest creation is our newest addition "Fennel" the Highland Cow.
Fennel is made using beautifully simple knitting and Aran weight wool with 5mm knitting needles ...so its quick as well!!
His tousled coat is created using gorgeous Alpaca Fleece with simple needle felting techniques.
This fleece has been sourced from Amber Valley Alpacas based in Derbyshire and the fleece is from one single Suri Alpaca, named Fennel so it only seemed right to name the design after him!
