I wish I could upload a tactile file, so you could feel it! Very soft. And the client who commissioned it picked it up with the fiber donor, Tess. It was Tess’ birthday! Here is Tess and her owner, with the piece made from Tess’ fiber:
She is a precious, retired therapy dog who was rescued rom a puppy mill. As a breeder in a puppy mill, Tess was not allowed out of her cage, but rather, treated like a production machine to pop out puppies and nurse them. She is very lucky to have been rescued. To the right of Tess, is her brother, Toby. One day, I look forward to spinning/weaving Toby also, as his owner posesses his puppy fur! I’ve enjoyed my connection to this family, as with all the chiengora families I’ve met.
