A little wet-felting...

I taught a wet felting class two weekends ago, and we had a great time.  It's wet and messy, but so much fun working with alpaca wool - luscious stuff - to create a scarf.  We used WY alpaca wool --all in the natural shades. 

Some of the gals got very creative with their combination of colors.  All went away with a lovely, soft, warm scarf.

On Sunday afternoon I was able to get the temperature up high enough in the "sun room" to use it to wet-felt another scarf.  I wanted to make one a bit longer, and the floor was the best option for a work space.  I made this one with what was left of the cream colored alpaca, with some of the curly baby alpaca mix on the ends for embellishment.

This is a scarf made from the baby alpaca mix.


  1. It looks rather wild – like the pelt of some poor creature!

  2. Looks quite "western". Very pretty.

  3. Your classes are always popular. Nice job.

  4. How cool is that?!! I have never seen this technique. WOWZA

  5. Fun! I'd love to watch you work on these if only you weren't so far away.
