What's On the Felting Table

This is an almost finished large scarf/wrap. I used this beautiful 70/30 merino/silk roving that I bought in WI a couple of weeks ago at River's Edge Fiber Arts. The colorway is Peacock and it has blues, lights and darks. I added merino wool in teal and navy as well as a significant amount of "carbon" merino wool (it shows up as brown in the picture. The pic is not very well lit as it is taken in my basement felting studio. Since my basement has a concrete floor which can get wet it is very convenient for wet felting. This scarf has beautiful dreadlocks, short and long. I finally have a method for achieving the full and wavy dreads that I most love. There is almost a pound of wool in this wrap. Its very warm and will be beautiful over denim. Love it! I'm just sad 'cuz I checked River's Edge website and I cannot get any more of this wool.
