Working with felt

June 29, 2017

Merino fleece, yarns, fabric snippets were wet felted.  Hand stitching was then added to define the imagery, and complete this pint-sized wall hanging.  Yet to be framed ready for hanging.  I welcome your comments about what you see in my piece.

Merino wool

April 19, 2016

This small piece of felted wool is a test sample as I wanted to see how well this particular wool roving would felt.

Working with variegated coloured roving, three layers were laid out.  A juggling act it was, to maintain the seperation of colours.  Muscle power was applied, as it must, when wet felting.  It turned out to be quite attractive don’t you think?
