a 'before' & 'after' bunny

I got this great idea to show the 'before' and 'after' photos of my little brushed bunny. Yes, that little nap riser brush makes all the difference. Who would know such a small brush can create such hairiness?

The brush fits nicely on your finger and gives you lots of control while brushing, to get into those delicate spots like around the face. The nap riser brush works great on alpaca or mohair yarns, pulling out the fibers especially after felting.

The bunny screams "touch me" again and again. And if you do and the fibers become flattened, simply brush again! That simple.

The yarn used on this little Woolly Bunny was Frog Tree's alpaca sport grey, two strands carried together. I love Frog Tree yarns! A great yarn for knitting and felting with. 

Happy knitting!

  1. Put one of those napping brushes aside for me! I will order it when the Matryoshka come on line!!! I can not wait!!

    The little jackolanterns on the sidebar are killing me with their cuteness. You are a genius with faces.

    I have been knitting gnomes! Your pattern is so easy to follow - and they knit up in no time at all. I have decided I absolutely MUST make a old black witch for Halloween!

    Thank you for all the fun you have been bringing to my crafty life!!
