Last week Chrissie Lauritz of Fibre Fusion demonstrated Nuno Felting to enthusiastic felting beginners at Precious Purl. Using her needle felted Merino wool Felbi pieces and a pre loved piece of patterned cotton, Chrissie showed just how easy it is to produce a lovely light weight, but warm scarf, in very little time.
I'm not a "real blogger" yet! I completely forgot to get the camera out until it was all over, but here is the finished piece.
I'm now inspired to use this beautiful piece of patterned silk I bought last year with the Turkish Red Felbi . A "Perfect Match" I think, although they are both a deep red not the raspberry tone of the pic (another dull and cloudy day for photos in Melbourne.
These great Needle felts are ready for you to add fabric, wool, silk, mohair or alpaca top and embellishments without the time consuming laying out of wool fibre.
The large size of Felbi Log is 150 x 200cm and ideal for a wrap for $45
and the scarf size Plank 35 x 200cm for $18.
They come in a great range of colours too.
We also have Batt Bundles, 8 pieces of Felbi 20 x 75cm for design work or just experimenting. These are available in single, solid colour pieces or larger hand dyed pieces also.
