Alpaca Bird Nesting Ball
Our Alpaca Bird Nesting Ball began more than 25 years ago when we needed to keep our fiber from blowing in the pool. It has been a favorite school group project here for years and the birds love it! Over the years we began adding the cut off bits and pieces of yarn from our weavings and other fiber projects that give some of the balls a pop of color. We've started pulling tufts out to help our feathered friends. Place your Alpaca Bird Nesting Ball up on top of the "v" of two branches. Tie the ribbon around the branches to secure and let the ends flutter, catching the attention of the birds. This way the birds can perch on the branch and not on the ball. We leave them out all year. No two are the same. They make a great gift for the young and old and even for the hard to shop for relative. Small balls are approximately 5" across, Medium 7" and Large 8+". Below is a photo of a nest that we found on the ground.
