I had created a photo tutorial last year for a FB group and FINALLY managed to put it on my website. It's a long one, but it's how I make felted vegetarian sheepskins. It's a bit different than how others do it, but it works for me.
Yes that is a lot of work. I bet it was really heavy when it was full of water. Its on my list to do. thanks for the tutorial
It was--I have made one larger one, but they are SO hard to move around hwile wet! I prefer the smaller ones like the one in the tutorial, because they are much easier to manage alone. I may make another larger one when I have a fiber friend visiting--four hands are better than two!
Thank you for posting such a comprehensive tutorial. Its another thing I have on my to do list. Now I've read how much is involved I'm not so sure. I have a small & slightly tatty Hebridean fleece awaiting something being done with it. Definitely an outdoor job, so I can procrastinate a little longer till summer.
I do prefer to do them outside--it is messy. Well, I'm sure it could be done neatly, but I sure can't!
I don't mean to put anyone off on trying it. It is a lot of work, but so is most of felting. Think of it this way, not only are you washing a fleece, you are turning it into something at the same time! When you look at it that way, it's a timesaver!
