Our Rise and Shine Rooster farmhouse wall decor is truly “farmhouse”! Each begins with our alpacas! Their fiber is grown for a full year. Each May a professional crew comes to the farm and shears each alpaca. (fiber gently removed) The fiber is sorted – blanket (prime) neck, and thirds. The neck fiber is put through a process called wet felting and is made into large felt crafting sheets. I take the large sheet of felted alpaca fiber and cut it into smaller pieces to use for handcrafting into beautiful items. Here I’ve used gorgeous rayon embroidery thread and stitched the design of the rooster sitting on the weathervane and cut out the circle. I’ve chosen to use alpaca yarn as the hanger. Each Rise and Shine Rooster – farmhouse wall decor piece measures approx 4 inches in diameter.
I’ve chosen to use the alpaca felted craft sheets in their natural colors – black, brown, fawn, gray, and white.
