This felting kit is by Hamanaka and it found it’s way into my Amazon cart easily enough. I don’t know the name but I think it’s
Good Friend Sheep H441-288. I really liked the texture and and though this lamb was cute for a weekend project.
I first started by felting the basic shape – making sure the snout, legs and tail were especially the way I wanted them since they were not going to be covered again. The body I made looking fat as I really wanted it to look like it had a full coat of fluffy wool when I was finished adding the texture.
The texture is created by some sort of Bouclé Yarn (see Wikipedia definition) but I don’t know what materials it’s made out of. The closest thing I found on Amazon was this Acrylic Nylon Blend Cream White Boucle and it’s at a reasonable price. However, here’s an Alpaca Off White if you’re trying to stay true to wool. In my opinion, I think the first one would work but the one I have seems to be in between these two products.
