This day, my good ex-colleague Florence and her sister Grace came to learn wool felting. Florence wanted to make a pure merino wool scarf while Grace wanted to do a nuno felt and both turned to botanical printed scarfs.
Wool layering takes time. Take a break, take a shot with my fluffy.
After 2.5 hours rubbing and rolling. Scarfs finished. They put assorted rose and euc leaves and bundle boiled for 1.5 hours, ready to open ........
Brownish / orange of euc in the first sight
Bright red of euc silver dollar and a little green of rose leaves. Pretty scarfs they made.
It was their first time learning about wool felt and natural print so we only done the simple flat sheet felting and dipped leaves in vinegar without mordants.
Although it was their first time of doing, they managed quite well pulling and layering wool. I asked if they're tired of rubbing and rolling, they said not at all and found interesting. Even bought some materials for home practice.
Well done Florence and Grace. Thanks for coming.
