This embroidered hoop picture features a woolly alpaca which has been hand drawn and cut from felt, then embellished with free motion embroidery detail.
Free motion embroidery is like drawing with a sewing machine - it is all stitched by eye so each design is slightly different and truly unique.
The alpaca has been stitched onto a background of burnt orange Harris Tweed. I buy the Harris Tweed directly from a weaver on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.
The artwork is framed inside an oval embroidery hoop which measures 19.5 x 15 cm. This is a very lightweight picture and can be hung on any wall.
The reverse of the hoop is backed with felt, and the official Harris Tweed orb label is sewn on the back.
Please get in touch if you would like a different size or colour as I can make to order.
