Oh my god. I literally can not imagine felting something so large. How many pounds of wool did that take? I've actually been considering felting something about half that size, with no armature, just something big enough to be huggable, but I can imagine that it will take way more than 8 ounces of core wool. Did it take a couple of pounds for the bulk of it?

But the goat looks amazing. Wonderful job :)

Thanks!
I order my core wool in two pound bundles and the goat took half a bundle, so it took a pound or so of core wool.

Wow, that's surprisingly less than what I thought it would take. Was he really densly felted, or is he kinda squishy?

It's actually very densely felted, most of my wool works are.

Oh cool! I guess I just don't have that much experience working large scale, so I figured it would take a lot more. But I'd love to try it some time :

Woah, that is a lot. Yeah, I'm definitely going to try something smaller at first.

I wish I could afford to commission a life size of my 4 month old nubian who was tragically killed while I was away from home.. I miss him so much..
