Ok, the little fella is decent now with his nice new fur, and let me tell you something....I LOVE this bamboo viscose yarn! The alpaca I usually use is nice, but this is so silky and soft and not only that, it is so much easier to handle. It seems to lay nicer without all the fly-aways that I normally spend forever trimming away on the alpaca. It also seems to work nicer for the flocking. I'm just really bummed that I can't find any other colors of it besides bright pink, blue, green, etc.
