towards the end of 2022 I have been able to spend more time focusing on designing and planning new ranges of fingerless gloves, wrist warmers and cuffs. These will be made using fine merino wool, tussah silk and other natural fibres. the process of making these is...
I make these shawls using Tussah silk hankies, which I laid out over the full length and width of my table. Next
merino wool is added followed by Blueface Leicester and Wensleydale locks,, plus mulberry silk. Once the laying out is completed I damped the shawl and leave it overnight to let the scales on the wool open ready for the felting process. This involves rubbing the shawl with a homemade olive oil soap solution. This helps the wool begin to bind together, one the materials become a fabric I then roll it up and roll it back and forth about 800 hundred times.
It is then laid out on the table and checked that all the fibres have felted/ locked together followed by gently fulling it.

Approximately 5 inches square. A mixture of wet and needle felt techniques. I use wool as a painter uses paint. They are full of movement and many different colour fibres. Using lots of different shades of one colour helps to create the hue that I am trying to achieve. Unlike paint when mixing blue and yellow will make green and adding white will lighten wools don’t change colour they have to be patiently and carefully blended. I find this a very magical and relaxing. Each painting has many layers of wool added either by wet or needle felting. This is a process that takes time. These miniature painting and others are available Starlings Art and; Craft Collective, plus Dippy Doodahs
