|The colors reminds me of the ocean|
Next I tried something different. The studio owner, her husband, and I went to visit an Alpaca farm to see if we can use the Alpaca fur to felt. Alpaca fur is softer than wool, but the felting turned out differently. It did not do too badly, and it looks more like cobweb felting. Interesting!
And here is the Alpaca whose fur we bought to use for felting! The Alpacas are lovely animals and their fur amazingly soft.
Over the last few months I have also worked on a few cowls for the coming fall and winter. My biggest challenge was the mobius cowl which is knitted in the round with a twist. It drapes beautiful and just looks so nice. I am happy with the way it turned out and I have yarn for the next one!
Some other cowls in different patterns. My model looks a little freakish with no make up or hair, but she did nicely.
I will be posting more on the Nuno felting and hope I can get a few more scarves done soon.
Until then, happy knitting!!
