Wet Felting

I have recently been having a play with wet felting.

Firstly with Nuno felting where you use a base fabric and wet felt silk and open cotton fabrics onto it. They bond to the base fabric and you end up with a beautiful fabric that you can use for a multitude of projects.

Secondly I had a go at wet felting a piece of raw Lincoln 
Longwool fleece. The fibres felted together through a process of massaging them with hot water and soap to end up with a lovely thick pad of fleece. This piece isn't finished yet and I intend to make a cushion pad with it and comb the fleece to produce a soft and fluffy finish to it.

And lastly I  had a go at wet felting a picture. I chose to have a go 
at Katsushika Hokusai's 'The Great Wave'.
This is my interpretation and I am thrilled how it turned out.

Wool is so versatile and durable.
It is a planet-friendly fibre - sheep are part of the natural carbon cycle, consuming the organic carbon stored in plants and converting it into wool.
