Hi Liza,
I found you via Julie's blog, and now I'm a follower of your blog too.
Peaches is adorable! I've been a teddy bear collector for many years and would love to add her to the family. (She'd have a good home-promise!)
I don't know a lot about fibers but I'll guess mohair.
I would be happy to post your giveaway on my blog. Hope you'll stop by and visit me, grab my button, become a follower......
Thanks for the generous giveaway.
Hugs,
JoAnne

Heather said...

I'm already follower, so I'll get down to the guessing. It is awefully smooth looking fibre so I am guessing cashmere with silk bits. I also posted a quicky on my blog to let others know about your giveaway. I love her belly jewel - so sweet.

CAT said...

I love her and would love to add her to my collection of fellow felters critters. I am guessing it is Alpaca with silk.

Angelique said...

Hi Liza and Peaches !

I found your blog and can't take my eyes of your little miracles !
They are so wonderfully made !
I have 1 needle felted item and that is a custom made little cat, made after one of my cats calle "Sweet Home Alabama". I have never done it myself, but would love to give it a try if someone would learn me. A pitty that you live on the other side of the planet ;-)

I have no idea what material you used on Peaches since I have no clue what needle felting is all about, but I make a wild guess: Fairy dusted angel hair ?

You can visit my blog on:
www.liekske-liekske.blogspot.com
You are welcome to take a look.
I'll make sure to post a promotion of you and your handfuls !

Beary hugs,
Angelique

baukje said...

So cute and there 's a baby coming in our family!!!!! I have really no idea of what she is made of, rough sheep wool?

Cindy said...

I am thinking out of the box and going with the mystery fibre as being "plastic"! There are so many things recycled now and used in different ways...its possible!!
