A sweet little brown bear:

Felted Bear

Felted Bear

He’s made from the beautiful alpaca roving I used for the tree in the Valentine’s Calendar.  It’s wonderfully soft, but it took a LOT of needling to get it to really felt together.  I didn’t notice it so much on the little mouse, but the bear was harder.  Still, it’s beautiful, and it’s nice to have seen the animals from whom the roving comes and know they are well-loved.  Certainly worth the extra effort!
