Here are some new skeins. I added beads and novelty yarn to add some texture. Also, I felted the last skein. Felting yarn is really cool!
I used size 6 seed beads on this one.
This one I used a silk that a friend gave me. It really adds a nice texture.
I felted this one!
Thanks for looking. Has anyone felted their yarn? Will you post some photos?
Thanks for all the fantastic feedback. Here's how I felted my yarn:
1.Using a nibby noddy wrap your yarn.
2.Then using a cotton yarn tie every 6 inches all the way around. Or a yarn that isn't wool.
3.Place yarn in a large pot of water with some soap on the stove. Heat the pot, keeping the water hot. I then used my potato masher to aggitate the yarn.
4.Aggitate for a little while, maybe 10 minutes. Take brakes, your arm will get tired.
5.Take the yarn out, ring out the water, lay the yarn in a O and carefully seperate the strands. At this point the yarn may have tried to felt to its self.
6.Take off the ties and replace them. Place the new ties inbetween the old ties.
7.Repeat steps 3-6 until you reach your desired look.
Have fun and share your results!
