They are fantastic. I saw a pair like this in the alpaca shop in Morpeth on Sunday. Would you be interested in trading or selling the pattern?

Hi Michelle,
I'm in the middle of moving house and all things felting are packed away at the moment.
But keep in touch, I'll see what I can come up with once we're settled again.
Have you felted with a resist before? If so, once you've mastered that, I'm sure you'd be surprised by how easily the method can be adapted to other items. It takes a little practice to think 3D and distribute the fibres evenly without lumping and creating seams, but well worth the effort!

What is felting?

"FELT" The Essential Macquarie Dictionary meaning:

"A non woven fabric of wool, fur or hair matted together by pressure"

Fibres can be manipulated with the use of soap, water, friction and heat variations ..........or the use of barbed needles to create many interesting, practical and wearable things.
