Felting – Needle Felt On Sweater

Filed under: Felting,Uncategorized — admin @ 9:13 PM

First try at needle felting.  Tried on a ratty old sweater kept for painting/studio.  Pics in order: Before, After, Close-Up to show dimensionality.




Close-Up to show dimensionality:


Observations: Fabric failed to felt, apparently has less wool content than I thought; sweater is 80% dead dinosaur/20% angora, but that is apparently enough, and the embellishments penetrated well; non-wool items can be felted down with an overlay of felt (orange yarn over grey fabric).
