Upwolfing with Lyn

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This was Lyn’s first try at upwolfing, a felting technique invented in the Netherlands. To use this technique you need an upwolfing mat which you can buy online.  Feltfine has them.  The steps are as follows:

  • Over the mat you lay the fleece.
  • You then poke through the holes with the fleece and put in another colour if you wish. (I used Mohair curls).
  • You then put in the plastic, roll up and tie up.
  • Into the washing machine with soap and away it goes.
  • Unwrap and dry when finished or put into the clothes dryer.

Very simple and when effort is put in, it could be a lovely piece.
Very unusual.  By Lyn A.
