Year of the Sheep – Wool Never Felt so Good – 22 September

All wool felts!  Some breeds felt better than others, some require lots of elbow grease and some felt before you get a chance to prep your design.

 

The breeds we used were Corriedale, Gotland, Merino, Polworth, Romney and English Leicester.

Audrey and Denise used the same wools to spin some yarns.
