Jennifer creates an image using wool rovings. They come in many colours and rich hues. The wool rovings are attached to a piece of pure wool fabric using a very sharp felting needle.
When the image is complete, the piece is placed on a sheet of bubble wrap which is laid on top of a towel. Jennifer then places a piece of screen on the piece. The wet felting can begin using very hot water and soap. The agitation of the hot water, soap, and bubble wrap cause the fibres to shrink. The piece is then hung to dry and Jennifer then embellishes the piece with hand embroidery.
It is a very satisfying process. During the wet felting stage, things can shift and change. So, one is never really sure how the piece will look! It is all part of the mystery and fun of felting.
