A few months ago I took a class at felt camp (Creative Felt Gathering) from Andrea Graham on sculptural felting techniques using a combination of wet and needle felting. This spanish shawl sea slug (Flabellina iodinea) was made using the same methods, it is about a foot long and made from short fiber merino over a coarser core wool.

I had some weird issues with the orange dye that caused some slight discoloration of the purple fibers, you can't really tell from these photos because the camera flash causes its own weirdness. I am debating whether or not to enter him in the sculptural felting category at the MDSW skein & garment competition, even though he has a few issues, just to add something less conventional.

Your slug is grossing me out. It's great! You've really done a smashing job when you give the willies with wool.

Enter it, definitely.

You should enter it!  I love it, and I'm sure that others will as well.  He would look beautiful on my coffee table because he rocks! Wink
