Hey Sue, do you know how to make felt?

This question was asked as we watched the lancaster taxi up the runway a couple of weeks or so ago. Of course I answered, wet, needle or knitted which totally confused her. So this week I introduced a ukulele player to the joys of wet felting with a bit of dyeing thrown in.

We made flat felt.

we made felted bowls using the balloon method

We made felt beads

and we dyed some handspun romney

we eventually ran out of time so a second session will be held on needle felting soon :-)
I also grabbed a few mins this week to unwrap a fleece gifted to me last month....its HUGE!!

I am going to be so busy!
