This needle felted Bunny Rabbit is one-of-a-kind and was needle felted using alpaca fiber. I call her Jerzee but you may name her whatever you'd like. She is mostly tan colored, with especially long bunny ears, a mauve print scarf around her neck, dark eyes, long legs for hopping, and a fluffy cotton tail. Seated, she is about 7 1/2", not including her over 4" long ears. She would make the perfect addition to your Spring decorations, or unique gift for someone special. Either way, this bunny is sure to make you smile!
Needle felting is the process of repeatedly pushing a barbed needle into a tuft of fiber, agitating, compressing, and locking the fiber together into a more dense mass of fiber. This bunny began with a nylon knee high stuffed with alpaca fiber, then wrapped with alpaca roving. Different techniques are used for adding arms, legs, ears, tail, and facial features. The entire process involves many hours and lots of poking with a felting needle to shape and create the finished piece, kind of like sculpting, but with fiber rather than clay. Each felted piece is a labor of love.
Did you know that a group of rabbits is called a herd, just like alpacas, and the place they live is called a warren?
Though soft and wonderful to touch, this felted bunny is not intended for unsupervised play or for children under 3 years, as loose fibers may cause a choking hazard. Please keep in mind this is an artist handmade collectible item.
