Short Fiber Merino Batts featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Some of our friends have been requesting we carry these for a while…and here they are! These very fine Merino batts are approximately 19 microns and wet felt very quickly to a tight finish. *available in 4oz increments

We find them especially suitable for beads, jewelry, sculptural elements, vessels and even hats. If they are to be used on items that will be handled a great deal, we suggest it be something you can hard felt, otherwise softly felted items from these short fibers would have a higher tendency to pill.

Lovely Felted Virgin Mary

Felted Virgin Mary by Kimberly Pulli featured on www.livingfelt.com/blogMother Mary, Kimberly Pulli, Pennsylvania

This week we share with you four different artists who have created art works on similar subjects, using four very different approaches to create a 2D work of fiber art.

Kimberly Pulli of Pulli’s Woollies is fast becoming known for her incredible art work purses featuring unique and beautiful faces of women. This lovely Virgin Mary is on a purse that was a gift for her Mother-in-Law. Kimberly wet felts the purse and uses it as a canvas. Her process includes both wet felting and needle felting in stages.

She uses Living Felt MC-1 Batts, Merino Tops, Luster Fibers, Silk Fabrics and other fibers for her textural art works.

We are very excited that Kimberly will come teach a class at Living Felt this summer.

Wonderful Wet Felted Bookmark Collection

Wet Felted Bookmarks by Roxana Schultz featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We love this collection of wonderful bookmarks!

“I had fun making the bookmarks and learned a lot about wet felting in the process – these are just some – I didn’t finish all because hand finishing the edges takes so much time! I also finished the cobweb scarf kit I got from Living Felt this month and my felting mentor was very impressed with the supplies in the kit and how it turned out!”

Cute Felted Baby Booties

Felted Baby Booties by Chris Pellerin featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We love these multi-colored baby booties Chris makes! Chris shares that she used Merino wool and felts them on a single resist (which is our method also!). She lives on a farm in Western Massachusetts where she tends to the land, grows food, cares for critters, rug hooks and felts.
