Anyone Out There Felting?

Unread post by Farmfresh » Tue Apr 10, 2018 8:21 pm

Needle felting animals, felting soaps or even just making felt material for crafts all have one thing in common... you need wool.

Hay. I got wool!

Katahdin wool is not good for spinning, Sage's hair is far better for that, but it does work well for felting and other crafts. My Kats are just starting to really blow coat. I got an entire plastic grocery sack - tight packed - off of Thyme tonight. She is shedding off black and slick.

The wool I collected tonight is black with some brown from being sun faded. I am planning on giving it a simple wash up and letting it dry well. Surprisingly it doesn't smell too bad even now. I will keep a bit of the wool for myself, but I still have at least two more ewes that are going to shed out this spring and I sure don't need to keep much.

Anyone interested?

It would work well if you are interested in any felting crafts. I would rather find a use for it instead of just pitching it in the trash. If you can use any or all of the wool I collect this spring just let me know and I will happily pop it into the mail for you ... of course FREE of charge.

Let me know.

Excellent! Do you want me to get you a selection of colors or do you just want the black? We should have white, ivory and some red patches coming... or is it coming out? |em12|

I am sure there will be plenty to share. Anyone else want some?

I'm considering it but I have no idea where anything is, much less my roving wool and felting supplies. What a nice offer!

Well I still have the other two ewes to shed out and save, so you have a while to keep looking. I am sure I will have more also.

Heck I could brush out Sage and we could all knit a sweater. He has a nice LONG fiber wool. LOL.

Funny though isn't it. How sheep shed has worth and dog and cat shed causes cussing. :lol:
