I use raw fiber for my long coats. What is raw fiber? It is fiber that is just washed and not processed at all. In other words it is not combed into roving. The raw fiber is more separated like real fur. I take a small pinch and brush it before I felt it in. This gets the VM(vegetable matter..hay, grass) out. Then I felt it in the middle or on the end depending on where I am placing it on the dog. My all time favorite is alpaca. I sell it in my shop and my packages have assorted colors in them, but I also make custom orders of one or two colors or whatever people wish. The sheltie and the pom in my title area were both done with alpaca. You can always practice on a little blob of wool that has been firmly felted. If it isn’t felted firmly enough, it won’t hold the fur in. You can see all my fiber in my shop on etsy. I also have lots more not listed if you’re looking for anything special! Thanks!
Washed alpaca fiber in assorted colors. Alpaca is fiber not wool. Wool only comes from sheep or lambs. It looks similar and can be felted very easily. It is very soft and fluffy! My favorite! I sell the same fiber that I felt with.
