Continuing to find new opportunities to use all of the fibre from the alpacas, we have started to make teddy bear sewing kits. ‘Bear Buddies’ are made from those fleeces with the softest fibre that is too short to spin. These bears are perfect for all ages from toddlers (sewn by an adult) to older children as a craft project, to older folks suffering from altzheimer’s for their tactile properties. As the bears are already felted, they can be safely washed and laid flat to dry.
