11  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to get rid of fuzzy fibres? on: February 12, 2015 05:39:35 AM
Hi B17Fan,

You can try picking off the wrong color bits....
Have you tried trimming the fuzzy bits with a fine set of scissors?? or lightly use a sweater shaver? That may solve the problem.

If you could post a photo of the piece it would be easier to figure out what needs to be done.

Years ago I used to do Border Collie rescue and owned 7 over the years. Smiley

You can find wool on Amazon or Etsy that is designated as being Hamanaka.

According to one article I read Hamanaka is just a brand name and the wool is Merino which is available in a lot of different places and doesn't need to be imported from Japan.
Merino is my favorite wool for needle felting. I buy from a place in Wisconsin.

Hope that helps!!

It would be easy to do this with fiber and some felting needles.

The only way I can think of sort of doing it with craft felt would be to cut shapes that can interlock (like zigzag or larger narrow triangles) and fit the different colored pieces of craft felt together that way - but you'd have to sew them or glue them on top of some sort of backing.

Craft felt these days is made of a lot of different things from wool to recycled plastic bottles. Wool craft felt you might be able to wet felt together and it might (with the interlaced long narrow triangles idea) be possible to get a better gradient effect.

Another thought it to try bleach or fabric paint.
14  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wet Felted Bead experiments on: December 27, 2014 09:53:17 AM
I'm supposed to be clearing off my craft table for a totally different project, but got involved in doing these instead

The last one pictured was the first one I made. The multi-strand necklace I just finished this morning. Has been very interesting work!! I hope to follow up and do some more experiments after I finish up the next project on my list (when I manage to get my craft table cleared off!!).

Already made the wet felted beads for a mossy green version of the multi-strand necklace - just have to find beads that match. I so wish there was a good bead store near by!!

Portrait of a cat that lives in Spain. He was rescued by some very wonderful people. He does have a bald spot and scar on the right side of his face - he's a lucky cat indeed!!

He's about 8.5" tall. Took a long time to get him done, but I'm pleased!! =^..^=
