(206) Felt Under Foot
Use traditional wet felting techniques to create a durable medium sized rug that will keep your feet nice and warm and make an artistic statement as well! We will combine wool and llama fibers for durability and resilience. Learn three techniques for making a felted fringe! Felting can be strenuous so be prepared for hard work! We will roll the loose fibers pretty hard to create the firm felt needed for a durable rug of this larger size.
