Convergence is a gathering of felt makers and sharing knowledge is the underlying theme. It is four full days of immersion and indulgence in every aspect of felt making suitable for all levels of experience. Anyone interested in felt making and textiles should attend. There is no need to belong to a formal textile organisation or felting group. Just come along, learn, share, felt and have fun.

A Disney Production

Surprised?  Not what you expected?  You shouldn't be.  After all, this is the 11th Southern Hemisphere Felting Convergence 2011 Blog so fabulous felt is the theme.

Meet Disney -


Yes he's the most gorgeous prize winning alpaca and his fleece created the beautiful wrap at the beginning of this post.

Alpaca creates delightful soft felt.  It takes a little longer to work with but the luxurious result is worth the little extra effort.

Disney and his family live at Rock View Alpacas in Harvey, Western Australia.  It looks a fun place -

Disney, Ned and his mum Snowflake at home

What are they doing?  Looks like they are watching TV  - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs perhaps?  Bambi?  - no that's too sad.

Actually, we are told it was a really hot day and the door was open so they came in and stood in front of the air conditioner!
