More Wensleydale wetfelting

I was so giddy with the wet felting skills I unlocked with ice cream the other day that I took a small piece of the grey Wensleydale fleece and made some sort of cushion/head rest from it:

On the back I put white Bergshaf/ Mountainsheep from the Wollfabrik/ Woolfactory.

I remembered: don’t fret with the curls while they’re still wet:

The Wollfabrik’s Bergschaf always has bits and pieces of vegetable matter in it:

It’s also not very soft. Only suitable for non-delicate felts such as rugs and bags and cat caves. Not suited for shawls or hats. But the Wensleydale curls are supersoft!

This piece of felt is meant to sit on my knitting chair.
When it’s put in the reclining position I can prop up the cushion and rest my head amidst the locks. That will be nice, especially in Winter.

Ahh the cat-help. Always the cat-help. Apparently I shouldn’t photograph any wool item on its own. It always needs cat enhancement.

  1. Well your cat-help is just so photogenetic! I would not be surprised if she was a supermodel in a previous life ;).
