I dont know, maybe your llama fur will work. give it a try!!

you can get a felting needle at the craft store, and "wool roving", too. you will need either that brush thing to felt on, or , like I use, a piece of closed cell thick plastic, like from the packing they use in computers or large appllances packed into boxes. you need a surface for the needle to poke into.

i was actually GIVEN a lot of the wool I have been using! it was a Godsend. I paid back my benefactor with a cute felted Appy.

hint , hint to any one who has washed, carded wool that needs a home . . .

I NEED white wool, especially.

a Palomino

needs a bit of finishing. I did him while "watching" TV, and in the darker room, cannot see spots that I've missed. the body is gray wool, with wire super structure, and is covered in the golden wool, so easy to miss spots where it is too thin.

A Reindeer!

I started making 4 legs. they were too skinny and long to be a hrose, and it just morphed into a reindeer. I've only seen them in real life a couple of times, so could not remember all details. but, the natural colored wools work well for this.

that's the cutest reindeer EVER! I can't believe you made him from memory - I can't even draw something without having 1000 reference pictures

I have some Curly horse fur that I've saved for this puprpose. I have not gotten around to it but you've inspired me!

My goodness, what amazing animals Tinyliny! They are all gorgeous but that reindeer has got to be my favourite. Or perhaps the westie? Or the donkey.... lol :)

What about trying a highland cow?

That's a good idea. But I think I want to do a Raccoon next, like the one that is nightly visiting our back deck.
