I've wanted to do some sort of felt/fiber tribute to amazing places I've been in my life. Mammoth Hot Springs is this incredibly dynamic geological wonder, and I HAD to make something.

I special ordered a batt with natural white and fawn suri alpaca, dyed merino wool, and firestar for some sparkle.



Gorgeous landscape:




I AM SO HAPPY how it turned out!!!!!! It is SO soft~ I can't wait to choose another place.

I also made 2 skeins of yarn from these batts over in the yarn section.

You can read more about the process (it's really a tutorial) at http://pearhugstudio.blogspot.com/2012/05/mammoth-hot-springs-felted-scarf.html
