They look awesome! And I *LOVE* the colours. Do you think there's a material other than wool that might have the same effect? Maybe a high-quality synthetic?
I tried felting a synthetic roving, dyed a wretched turquoise blue, and the silly thing wouldn't felt. The roving just falls apart if it's not wool. The theory behind woold dreads is the same as real dreads: the rolling of the natural fibers gets them to mesh togethe. But synthetic fibers don't work like that.
Thank you for the compliment.
