Rachel Denny Creates Magnificent Domestic Trophies Knitted With Luxurious Alpaca and Yak Fibers

Portland-based artist Rachel Denny was recently profiled in The Guardian and it occurred to me that we’ve never shared her work here! Since creating her first knitted doe trophy in 2005, Denny has branched out and made many more busts of a variety of gorgeous animals, such as sheep, goats, alpaca and yaks. She often uses alpaca and yak wool in her creations. I find her work very inspiring – enjoy!
