We haven't had many felty projects on the go over the last few weeks but we have got lots of ideas that we want to get stuck into over the coming weeks. However, Mum did make this set of pretty wet felted pebbles:
They are made of merino wool (topped with white silk) wet felted around real pebbles (approx 9 cm in length). This makes them ideal both as practical objects e.g. paper weights, or just for decoration. Its a bit of a fiddly process but is fun to do - basically you have to wrap the merino around the pebble in layers, felting each layer a little as you go. Once you have three or four layers loosely felted, add some silk or other toppings and then roll around and around in your hands or in bubble wrap until well felted.
In the past we have made lots of small pebbles and beads of wool and silk (no hard centre) that we made into jewellery and other smaller items.
