We love when our customers share their finished projects with us!
Last month someone purchased Drifa’s white fleece. She wanted to be sure much of it was intact from shearing for the project she had in mind.
She created a felted batt of about a pound of carded Icelandic wool on which to felt Drifa’s intact (not carded) fleece.
She positioned Drifa’s fleece, tips down, on her felting surface first, carefully arranging the fibers in their natural position as they grew on Drifa.
She then placed the batt on top with some cheese cloth for extra stability, and wet felted the two together, followed by a good scour and rinse to clean the raw fleece.
She said that it took a full day, but obviously it was well worth the effort! This will be a lovely furniture throw – both beautiful to look at, and functional as a warm snuggler on a cool night!
Next best thing to cuddling up with a sheep!
