Another alpaca! I love making these little guys, they are really enchanting in person. I dabbled with dyeing the fur but those curls don't like it very much and it seems a shame to jeopardise the gorgeous softness.
This beautiful cuddly alpaca doll has gorgeous creamy, curly fur and a charming smile. He has little felt ears coloured delicately with chalks, and gentle hooves with a shining layer of varnish.
His 'skeleton' is a plastic ball and socket armature so will never break, but he has wire in his ankles and where the head meets the neck to allow for more realistic movement.
The fur is synthetic faux fur, it is very dense and soft and has a thick layer of stuffing, so he is very cuddly. His face is hard plastic painted with acrylics and varnished.
This little alpaca measures 9" from hoof to ear and 10.5" from nose to tail tip. He would make a fantastic, thoughtful gift for the aspiring alpaca herder in your circle of friends and family, or he would make a delightful and friendly addition to your desk!
