The wool used in the vase project is from Vermont farm animals near Bella's original home. The animals are loved by their owners who feed and care for them, then spin their wool into roving fibers for YOU to PLAY with at Art À La Carte with Bella workshops!
Now how cool is that?!?
You can buy wool to knit and create with on your own if you like at www.montgomeryfiberfolk.com
These vases were made with wool from the animals shown below!
Here are pictures of Bella's Samoyed Sled Dogs, Ollie and Miss Sophia, who also had their hair spun into wool to make yarn to later make hats, scarves and more (oh yes, their hair was very clean—they were sparkly white and soooo cute)!
And here are just a few more photos that inspire Bella's work...
