Over Felting

Post Number:#1  Unread postby GBov » Sat Jan 23, 2021 3:14 pm


Oh, the dreaded words!

Which simply describes the technique of layering fresh wool onto felt and then either wet or needle felting it on/into the already felted layer.

So never be afraid to "over felt" anything again! :lol:

I like the fish best, it seems a happy fish! What wool did you use?

Pure Shetland! So soft, mmmm love Shetland.

I can buy a raw fleece over here for between $5 and $15 (can go much higher but I won't, I am not spinning so don't need best wool) so my room is stuffed with wool.

Herdwick, Hillswick, Hill Radnor, and Shetland right now.

Smells good. :D

Just finished a triple felted toy and am about to start a shetland bed throw.

Having cheap fleeces means I have to be more creative when using all the different qualities of wool. 8-)
