Felty foxes jumping in the studio

Felted wool sweater ready to be cut

It starts with a 100% sweater either found at a thrift store or in someone's closet....and it ends as an original embroidered felty fox!  The discarded 100% wool knit sweater is washed for 2+ hours on the hottest cycle in the washing machine until the knit is no longer visible, because the fibers have so shrunken and intermeshed, that I've produced FELT.  Then, the former sweater can be cut with scissors into shapes and appliqued, embellished and created into unique works of art.  Wool is a great fiber to play with on a snowy cold day like today....going to make another cup of coffee and bring these felty guys to life.
