A Bit More Felt.

As I'm on the subject of felt, and in response to Alice, or Mrs M as she prefers to be known, I thought you might like to see this.

Good gracious, they made a house! So tell me, is the Dogdaisychains residence made of cloth? Perhaps you're a friend of Uncle Feedle?

Fantastic, I really enjoyed that - though I did wonder how much tiny 'wildlife' ends up living in the felt. Yet another reason why wool is the king of materials (IMO).

Mind blowing! What a wonderful world we live in, in terms of being able to communicate like this and be able to tap a few taps on a keyboard to watch such craftmanship. Thanks Jackie, I wouldn't have seen this had it not been for following your blog. x

Absolutely facinating, thank you. I keep saying I must try this felting malarky, got loads of olive oil... and I've seen goat and sheep by the side of the roads...

When I see this film I can really laugh at myself because I find it very hard to make a decent little piece of felt. Nevertheless it is wonderful to see.

Thank you for showing this - I have photos of a Yurt felt house - our son stayed a few nights in one in Kyrgyzstan some time ago - so it's interesting to see how they are made.
He didn't mention ticks, but said the floor mattresses and covers were immaculate.

Hi Jackie. Here is my reciprocal comment!!!! Typed with my leg in the air aswell. You were right about the time off work, I went in today, big mistake! Now it's doctors again and fingers crossed it's better before Sweden!

Amazing!

Felt is something I really like the idea of, and I do enjoy it when forced to make it - but I never quite carry on with it at home...

Thank you for visiting my new blog :)

That is fantastic. There is a yurt holiday project near here, wonder if they make the felt themselves! Do hope the sheep got his legs untrussed.
