Had a little experiment to see if I could create some nuno/laminate felt in the washing machine, without doing any rubbing, rolling or throwing myself.
The result wasn't entirely successful - there were bits of the fabric that had not adhered to the wool and I had to put them in about three cycles to get them to the stage I wanted. But it wasn't a complete disaster. I shaped them into four different brooches and may have another go sometime.
I placed some handmade prefelts around a shower gel bottle, then I wrapped wool around everything to secure it in place. I then put it in a leg of a tights and washed it on a 40 degree wash.
Somehow it turned into this little creature!
And this little monster was done in the exact same way but around a balloon with legs and arms attached before putting in the washing machine.
What to do with them now!!
