Onyxox-yes they are all wool....a  very fine, soft merino. It must really stink to be allergic to wool! I have found that a few friends who thought they were allergic to wool actually were just reacting to the scratchiness of rougher breeds' wool. One of them has found that she can have merino against her skin with no trouble, while the other friend really IS very allergic and can't use any wool but found she can have alpaca on.

I have not tried wearing alpaca, but have worked with it.   But have tried merino and a few others in the past.  I can wear wool hats, and mitts (so long as i don't rub my eyes), but anything on the torso, and around the neck and chest and I'm done for.  Recently I was making something with a merino/silk mix, and another project using alpaca, and I was wondering why my eyes were so itchy and I finally connected it to the fact that i was rubbing my eyes while working with the yarn.  That makes me so sad because there are so many lovely wool mixes out there.  I would love one of your creations as a hair ornament, or decorating a hat, jacket, or purse - they are beautiful!

If anyone is swapping with me & happens to see any of the Pickup Trucks Forever stamps on their mail - please pop them in the package for me - my hubby would love them!  Huge pre-emptive thanks

Thanks everyone!  Cheesy

After I have the basic flower shape I will wad up some felt scraps or a few paper towels into a ball and rubber band  the petals closed around it. Then I really try to felt the center of the flower so it shrinks. This helps make the flower petals have a more natural curve when finished.
