Experimenting

I have felted two knitting yarns together without any other wool/merino present – thinking of a “glueish” property of wool (it sticks together + things can be trapped with it). This is a result. It is just a sample measuring cca 20 x 20 cm.

One side with a yarn consisting of wool, silk, kid mohair and nylon – pink and purple colour.

Detail:

 

 

The other side – variagated green 100 % wool.

 

It felted well and the yarns are stuck together, I didn’t need to use a needle to join them.

I like this lightweight wool finish: when wool is carded or in a form of a sliver it is sooo soft and delicate, I would like to keep these properties in  finished pieces.
