I've had a good time dyeing some mohair and alpaca.
The first one I dyed was a lovely Hembold Alpaca in a Wisteria sort of purple blue combined with white kid mohair.
The second is the same Alpaca in a pink/Fuschia colour also with a white kid.
Both this pink and the Wisteria blue are going to be pj bears- white with a colour body/arms/legs so they look like they are wearing a "onesie"
This next is a really dense Schulte Mohair that I dyed a super hot pink. She is going to be an all over pink bear with white kid mohair paw pads.
This is a bear with a double jointed neck. She is made in a gorgeous Kid mohair in a milk choc colour. So far I have felted 3 paws (still working on a fourth:) and her face. I still have to felt her a nose yet.
Next is a similar bear to the last but I have only got as far as stitching at the moment - stuffing is coming !!
Last but not least is the first bear I have made using long pile Japanese silk - I am loving how soft the pile is with a really firm backing. I am not sure what I will do with this one yet, I think I will scissor sculpt the face with a traditional stitched nose but the urge to felt may grab me lol.
I'll be back with some more progress later on in the week :)
