I have experimented on the small scale with different wet felting techniques but this is my first success story.  It is a recycled Banana Republic skirt with merino and silk roving hanging out on the edges.  Additionally, I added some beading.  I have all this "old" (uh, too small clothing for me  Embarrassed that I have held onto since I was 21 and a size 6) that will find a new home in the roving world!!!!!

That looks gorgeous! They are so beautifully textured.
Lovely!  Kiss

Have you considered selling some? Or giving them as Christmas gifts?
I'm sure the recipients would love them!

Hey snacker - your project reminds me of something recently nuno-felted for an assignment at UNI
But yours is so much more elegant and classy!
There's a soft oceanic feel about your piece that's quite serenely beautiful.

Jane Doe, considering I just got back from the Gulf of Mexico there maybe some unconscious free association going on.  Grin

Oh, Oh, Oh  love it!  You are moving so quickly with your felting.  Beautiful laminate felt work.  The whole concept is marvelous - the recycling, the silk, roving and beads - all work together so well.  Felt on Snacker!

That is a very lovely piece. The textures are out of this world. And the embelishments are well placed and make great accents. So pretty. Did you felt the roving into the silk coth from the skirt? It doesn't look like you sewed it. Amazing.

Thanks!  Yes, I felted the roving into the silk cloth from the skirt.  No sewing involved!  That is the bestestestest (tee..hee...) part about felting...just your hands, hot water (or cold in this case), soap, roving.
