Alyssia Holmes, Fiber Artist, TWO FELTED FOX

Leading Ladies 2024


After discovering needle felting at her local library, Alyssia Holmes spent night after night perfecting her art in the form of miniature wool animals. Eventually, she began crafting replicas of people’s pets from photographs, and TWO FELTED FOX was born. “Grieving the loss of a pet is hard, and I get to offer them the smallest bit of comfort,” Alyssia explains. Her work has been displayed at Wickford Art Gallery, shown on Studio 10, and featured in Dogs Today magazine.
