More of a Wrap


Normally when I make needle felt creations I poke the heck out of them. It makes for a hard dense piece. Some people needle felt very loosely by simply wrapping the wool and only poking it in a little. So I experimented with this style today... I still poke way more than the folks I mentioned but what you see is a much looser guy than what I usually do.

  1. I like this, it is good for a snowman. I felt hard too, but I guess for things that are not touched and played with softer is good, what are your thoughts?

    1. I'm with you, I tend to be paranoid so the sturdier the better. But like you also said something not played with is fine for this style. Some of the wrapped stuff is hardly felted at all, I don't think I could be that etherial!
