Reversible raw fleece vest 雙面羊毛背心

 Fall is around.  Feeling well and felting good.  During the 4-day long weekend, I made two vests with raw fleece. 一連四日悠閒假期, 藉著秋高氣爽, 開始我的羊毛背心製作, 也是新款式的嘗試, 用的大部份是未經處理的 Finn 及 Wenslaydale 原毛, 這是我很喜愛做冬日衣物的羊毛.  做了一件雙面背心及一件大碼背心 .
 This short one is reversible.  I used the nuno felt skill so in between is a chiffon that's a nice way to do the seamless wearable.  One side is mainly of Finn fleece and Wensleydale fleece. More textural, wild and curly locks I love most.
 The other side is of merino wool,  colar with curly locks.  
 Could be a warm vest with curly locks.
 Steps of making : First layered merino wool on both sides, then the  Finn and Wenslaydale fleece.
 Since the raw fleece are quite muddy and the wool needs lots of water, I have to do this in the open yard.
 Mogi examinated my layering.  He's a great helper ! 

 After the "rock n roll" for sometime, it's done.
 A pin of ceramic sheep is a good match.
 Hmmmmm, my laptop.....
Am I too slim or Mogi is huge ?! 
 This fluffy is warm enough.
 What so yummy?
Two vests made, one is large size and mine is small.

 Love this one, reversible with two looks.
