New Felted Project: Woolly Sheep

Here it is: my newest wool needle-felting project! It is a woolly sheep that I finished it last night. There is nothing sewn, glued, tied or anything like that on it. Everything is needle-felted wool roving. The "woolly fluff" is some curly bearding that is all kind of like little ringlets. I just cut little pieces about 1/4" and felted them all over the body one piece at a time (It took about two hours.).

Here are some "before and after" pictures. That is the sheep without ears, face or curly coat. The others are different angles of the finished sheep. It is really soft to hold and hardly weighs anything (that is how it is able to stand up on those four little legs). The face is just teensy-tiny strands of colored wool.
