I've started a little project. Felting a piece. Not making felt. Did that with the roving, but knitting and "Fulling." I'm picking colors I have and that I like. Bought some Brown Sheep Bulky last summer in the US. Started with that. It really doesn't go very far so....rip...Go up to Holly's Yarn Emporium (Rubbermaid containers upstairs) and find another set of colours that are very similar. A good mix of Manos (old), Manos (new), something Icelandic (old) and Cascade (new). It's kinda like the wedding thing. Something old, something new... blah, blah, blah and but nothing blue. Yeah, that's how it goes.
If my memory serves me right, which it often doesn't, seems to me that the old (more than 15 yrs.) Manos tends to fade in the felting process. Better do a test run. What do you think??
They all shrank equally. Yeah! I still like the effect a lot, but something is different.
