Great Horned Owl Makes Awesome Nature Study in Alpaca Fur Rug

Real Owl Models for Custom Owl Alpaca Rug

Most people I believe, have some animal species that they feel a special connection to. Some people tend towards the exotic (think panther or sea turtle) while for many of us, a simple dog or cat is our connection to the natural world. It may be a spiritual connection, or there may simply be a love for the great outdoors. For whatever reason, images of favorite animals will always be a popular decorating accent for many people.

Kenny from South Carolina wanted us to create a custom alpaca rug for him, featuring a Great Horned Owl. He sent us the pictures you can see at the top of this post, that were used as models for the rug seen below.

Alpaca may not seem an ideal medium for animal art, but it really has a lot going for it. For one thing, alpaca is extremely soft and warm, enabling you to actually touch your animal art, once it has been created (try that with a painting!). And since alpaca is so light, it can be used as a wall-hanging just as easily as a rug. Alpaca comes naturally in a wide range of colors, remarkably suitable for depicting nature. And while fur may not seem to lend itself to intricate detailing; take a look at the owl close-up below .

Note the fine details on the breast and wing, and keep in mind that this owl is only about 20 inches tall!

Children love to stroke these alpaca "pictures", making them ideal for a child's room. Every child (and most adults) have a favorite animal that they would like to feel close to. Alpaca fur is a great way to let them do that.

If you have an idea for a custom project, give us a call, or email, and we will be more than happy to discuss your decorating options.

Kenny’s custom project can be seen below, as a 3 x 5 rug. Kenny called us as soon as he received his owl, to tell us how happy it made him. Favorite critters will do that!
