Future Felted Fiber Dreaming

I love visiting New England Felting Supply in Easthampton, MA.! After months of percolating ideas about creating pieces that included large felted areas  juxtaposed with silk charmeuse, I went a bit crazy there last week.

Fiber to Dye

Fiber to Dye

SO many enticing and varied choices of fibers! I stuck to buying only undyed fiber which helped me focus but I couldn’t resist the potential possibilities of combining various dyed-together fibers and the richly textured felt I might be able to create.

Emphasis on “might”. I’m venturing into dyeing and using wet felt methods combining pre-felt, bat, silk fibers and possibly cotton cording. I will most likely need to expect a few disasters initially.

First dye session on Sunday with my amazing fiber buddy, Kris.
