I’ve been busy skirting this year’s wool clip. Bella, one of my favorite natural colored Shetland ewes. I’m really fond of her variegated fleece for the depth and tactile quality! She’s expecting late April.
…and her daughter, Blinke.
I love my sheep!!
I played a bit more with my Shetland wool roving (that’s surprising, wink!). I used two individual girls’ wool: Brenna’s ‘black’ and Reese’s moorit.
First, two layers or more of one sheep and then another two or three layers of the other sheep’s naturally colored wool.
See, reversible! Twice the goodness!???
The slight difference in each fleece influenced the wet felting process and final character of the project. I added Lincoln ‘fringe’ to both ‘ends’.
Always fun to explore (play) with wool!
