A while ago Marilyn, from the Felting and Fibre Studio sent me some fibres, one of them being some Domestic 56s wool tops, I tried them out on a texturey piece I made, mostly for the base, but also to add some texture between the base and top layer of 18.5 mic Merino. I liked the way it felted, similar to our English 56s.

I also used some Bluefaced Leicester Noil between the 2 layers. This is lower across the surface:

Some of the embellishment fibres I used were soy staple fibre, viscose and flax:

I also used milk and bamboo.

This photo taken from above looks strange, whichever way I rotate it, it always looks upside down!

Don't forget if you're around Manchester next Sunday, Victoria Baths on Hathersage road has a craft fair, with 50 stalls. I'll be there as long as a wheel doesn't fall off my trolley between now and then :)


  1. Texture is fun to play which give a 3D effect.

    1. Yeah, it's nice to create something you don't have to get smooth with neat edges.

  2. Great texture. Good luck at Victoria Baths - I'd love to come and say hello and see your lovely work but I'm away on Sunday. Hope it goes well!

    1. Thanks a lot :)
      There's another one in November, I don't think many people did very well yesterday, but I sold a few small things which paid for the stall!
