Nesse, if you don't mind explaining your process, that'd be awesome!

I'm in the middle of felting some cowls (as in, I started them a month before Christmas and they're half felted hanging up all sad). I had trouble getting them very thin, which was what I wanted. Do you have a good method for achieving the thinness you get?

Most of my cowls are actually fairly thick. but if you want them thinner, just lay out less layers of wool Smiley if you are felting a batt to make your neckwarmer (which I think is how yours were made, correct me if I'm wrong) try splitting the batt in half and spreading it out so it's not as thick.

did that help at all? Cheesy

Wow, you do have mad felting skills!  I am usually not that drawn to wet felting, but your stuff is amazing!
