Camelus bactrianus by azu-55 Camelus bactrianus by azu-55
Meet Chupa (Čupa) the Bactrian Camel.

She’s made from wool and suri alpaca locks, needle felted over a wire armature.

She’s one of my biggest needle felted animals to date, measuring 21 cm in height and 28 cm in length.

I carded her pelt myself on my drum carder. The lovely alpaca locks come from Sarafina: www.sarafinafiberart.com/

Gorgeous! The face structure and anatomy are really lovely. The first few times I looked at the thumbnail in my message centre, I thought it was a photo of an actual camel, haha.

Thank you. :)
I hope to make her a proper display case for my kitchen soon(with sand, stones and probably a needle felted fennec fox).
