What a gorgeous composition and fabulous felted necklace!
“Here are some of my new creations. My last project was the blueberry necklace. It was made from blue shades of blended merino silk. The middle of the berries were needle felted with black merino wool. For the berries I used the wet felting method.
I made the daffodil brooch as a celebration for the upcoming spring season. I used white merino top for the petals and varying shades of yellow merino top wool and silk for the middle of the flower. I also made my favorite flower, the oriental poppy. I used powder colored merino top and pink and purple silk fibers.
Using the wet felting method, I tried many varieties of soaps and Living Felt olive soap is by far the best I have used to create these beauties. Thank you for your wonderful products! Happy Spring!”

Deborah Loveless stopped in for some supplies and brought a few show-n-tells. How about this bee?!! It weighs over 11oz.
She wet felted it with our PF-X Prefelt as a base layer and Merino top for design. Wet felting is new for her…awesome, yes?!
If you like this one, check out the crows she felted shared in our facebook group.
Wow! What a gorgeous scene Judy has created! This is stunning! A merino prefelt background, picture felted with Merino Tops and other fibers.
“Wooohooo it’s done! This is my first, original, felt painting! This is “Lick Creek.” 12″x12″. Not too shabby for first time stabbing, lol! Thank you Living Felt for the wonderful material to work with. I’m hooked!”

We love this pretty and fitted felted vest by Judi Francis!
“This is my very first wet felted vest! It has a collar and I used the lovely wool from Living Felt! It is [Merino Top] midnight and white.”

Erin Butler Models her stylish wet felted cowl made with our fine Merino Tops in Charcoal and Dijon, with accents of wool nepps and silk blends or silk hankies to get the vein-like textures on top. They are also fabulously reversible!
Erin says they will make great gifts while also serving as explorations in design. Each weighs approximately 2oz, starting size is approximately 17.5″ x 15.5″ and they are wet felted over a resist. Erin shares that the resist is shaped to help hold the fibers in place and prevent the from slipping off
What an inspiring project and our gratitude to Erin for sharing her technique! Remember to test/measure for shrinkage 🙂
We SO fell in love with the gorgeous heron Sandra Atkins needle felted from our fibers, and this one was made just for us. It is a bit of a “relief” with the heron having dimension off the background.
Despite losing power and emergency evacuations, this brilliant work of art was birthed and now hangs at our office in Austin, TX.
The background is needle felted Living Felt MC-1 batting in Storm Gray various colors of Merino Top, and Merino Silk Blends make up the bird, and lovely dyed locks add texture.

Megan Nedds shared her most recent and quite spectacular sculpture in our facebook group. It is so fun for us to have seen the inspiration images, help select colors and now see the finished work!
“Cece the White-Fronted Capuchin is finally finished! She is life-sized, with a head and body length of 13 inches, and a height of 13 inches from her hands to the top of her head. She has hand painted glass eyes, and polymer clay fingernails. She took approximately 100 hours to complete. I used many Living Felt merino top colors, Sand Dollar, Mushroom, Mocha, Oak, Milk Chocolate and Bitter Chocolate.”
