Needle Felted Wensleydale Lamb
I have this stash of super tiny Wensleydale lamb locks that I have been hogging all to myself and I used some of them to make a little needle felted lamb of my own. I attached a pin back and made the curly little lamb into a brooch. This is a needle felted ode to my favorite garden sheep Bramble.
Then I had this idea to use the lamb brooch to make a lariat with some of my super chunky, lock spun (also Wensleydale) The nice thing is, they can be used together or are completely functional by themselves. I needle felted some extra little curls at the end of the lariat to make some uber curly little pom-poms.
The lariat is over 70" long, so there is plenty of length to play with different wrapping styles. It make the perfect little skinny scarf and while the lamb makes it playful, alone the lariat adds an artsy flavor.
