Project Zoo Loves Alpaca

Hand Spun Alpaca Fibre
This is a really neat fibre-related volunteer project that I coordinate here in Toronto. We asked the zoo keepers to collect the fibre from the alpaca and camels when the animals are groomed so that we can use the fibre to make beautiful one of a kind objects to donate back to the zoo so they can be sold in the gift shop. The money (100%) raised from the sale of these items go to the "Enrichment Fund". The Enrichment Fund provides the animals that live in the zoo with supplies that enhance the animal's experience. I want to share some photos of some of the work that has been done so far on the project. Enjoy!

  1. I love those needle felted alpacas!!

  2. They ARE great! I tried to reproduce on myself, but it ended up looking more like a dinosaur!
