Wet-felting a scarf...
I couldn't get into it fast enough to see how many ounces would make a nicely shaped scarf. I discovered that I could make this one with just under 2 ounces. Linda said that because it's a very fine fiber, and because it's so fluffy, the fiber goes a long way and actually take less to create a scarf. It did not take me long at all to lay out 3 layers of fiber and get the felting (kneading with hot water and bit of soap) underway. Easy-peasy.
This scarf is narrower and thinner (lighter) than the scarves I've felted in the past, and I really like it better.
I'm ready for the November wet-felting scarf class!!
