A Donkey, a Goat & a couple of Shetland Ponies - needle-felted by Night Owl Needle Felts
Leane from Night Owl Needle Felts is a self-taught avid needle felter from Cumbria and has been working with wool and alpaca fibres for four years. She went full time in her business in January 2020.
She enjoys creating felted characters and her work is mostly inspired by wildlife and pets, creating characters from fibres and barbed needles!
Leane says 'it's a lengthy process taking many hours and thousands of stabs, so I get quite attached to them by the time I've finished. I don't use patterns or kits, I just start to felt and they take on little personalities of their own'
