Remember the felted soap?
If you guessed I couldn’t stop there, you would be correct.
Wool is a very cool thing. If you’re not familiar with it, this is wool roving from merino sheep. Merino is said to be the best for felting.
In it’s original form.
These pieces of felt were made by layering wisps of the roving and then working it with soap and hot water. The little hearts were needle felted onto the white piece with the needle pictured above with the roving.
The little bowls were crocheted with wool yarn and then wet felted. The little one is only a bit over 2 inches across.
And these are needle felted hearts…about one inch in size.
Very habit forming. Of course, the thought crossed my mind that I could dye my own roving, but protein fibers (animal) need a different sort of dye than cellulose fibers (plant) and I don’t want to go there. I’ll let someone else have that fun!
I have been sewing, too! Here’s a peek.
