  1. Hi ,can you tell me what Colors wool i have to to mix for a Yorkie,

    Thank you,Simone!

    • Hi Simone,
      I don’t use wool for yorkie fur. I use silk fibers like mohair and silk and I have them custom dyed to match whatever yorkie I want to create as some are lighter than others. I would say that on a typical yorkie I would use a steel gray with some light silver highlights that are felted on in then layers… not mixed. Then I would use some ginger brown in different shades for the rest. I would highlight it with some silver and cream on the chest. I hope that helps! Happy Felting!

      • Thank you!
