But make sure you buy wool that can be wet felted!! There are a lot different kinds of wool and they are not always suiteble for wetfelting. Merino roving works fine

Wet felting is wool fibres interfering to eachother, with the help of soap, water and your energy= felt

Fill a bowl with water and soap (I use olive soap, but any soap will do), make some bubbles in it so the foam comes on top of the water.
Just take a piece of wool roving, wrap it around your fist, and then very gently put the foam on the wool. Next you'll have to very gently start rolling the wool and water soap in between your hands. Keep doing this till the wool becomes stiff. Sometimes helps to add some soap/ water. Good luck!!

needle felting shall not be a problem with your wool. Wet felting need to be tested, But normally I would say it's no problem using them for felting.
The only thing you'll  need to do is unwind the thread, Or use the thread as a lining in your felted item.

Good luck!

Hi all,
I wanted to share with you my latest wet felting project: A teapot for my daughters.
I have used a balloon, covered it up with wool, used some sewing thread to keep it all to the balloon, placed another 2 layers of wool upon that and started to make everything wet.  Next time I'll use the flat resist method, because I think it's maybee easier to make it then. Now I have sewn the handle on, the big dot at the lid and the ropes at the edges of the lid. The heart - thread is needle felted on to it.

What do you think of it??





The little teabags are sewn from industrial felt.

I never needle felt the prefelt onto the wool fibres. I am not that patient. I just make it wet and start very gently "massaging/ rubbing." Maybe a tip to spare time.... Huh
It works for me!

Succes!

Kim
