These monsters are the product Jake and Annie teamwork. Their bodies are made from 100% alpaca wool, and their fearsome claws, teeth (or tooths), eyes, horns and antlers are made from polymer clay. The brown fellow has a hand-whittled pegleg, and is inspired by a so-ugly-he's-beautiful bulldog that we met on one of our adventures. The lady yeti is wearing a cap that was hand-crocheted from embroidery floss. They both have little canine footpads, which you cannot see in the photograph, as well as very shapely bottoms, and dangerous claws on their hands.
