hand felted wool

...Christmas stocking
Made from Welsh wool and embellished with wild grasses and seed heads 

I am loving the process of using washed, carded, local fleece and making felt. It is the most satisfying process, other than spinning my own yarn. To make 'fabric' is a creative wonder. It opens up a whole new realm of what can be made and produced.

I love picking dried seed heads and grasses on many a walk with my dogs in the fields that surround my home, so to incorporate this joy with my love of wool is fantastic.

Monmouth Show...
had a super day with a great bunch of people in the 'Country Matters' area of this great county show

I demonstrated peg loom weaving and promoted all things woolly, along side some super creatives showing their skills at felting, poetry, jam making, hedgerow foraging and much more.....even the lovely Terry Walton of the Radio 2 allotment was there to share his knowledge...

It's my fav county show, even though I live 60 miles away, I always really enjoy the day

I even got to meet a smallholder that breeds Whitefaced Woodland Sheep...a rare breed that I have always wanted to see in the 'fleece' and indeed spin their fleeces. Lovely to see people committed to keeping this beautiful breed of sheep alive.

So here's some pics of my stall, my pals stalls too, fflokyfelt and Francesca Kay...and lots of lovely sheep...enjoy ;0)
