Today I’ve got a short video for you.
It’s on a subject that I haven’t heard anyone talk about yet: recycling felted wool rests.
It might not seem very important to you, if you’re just starting out with felting. But if it’s something you do on a regular basis, I bet you’ve already asked yourself what you should do with all those bits and pieces that you got from cutting parts off your projects or from items that just didn’t turn out the way you expected.
To me this is really something important. I work with high quality wool (with the certifications Öko-Tex® Standard 100 and Global Organic Textile Standard), so it would never cross my mind to throw away any rests. I keep every little bit, even the pieces my students don’t want to save, when I’m teaching live workshops ? This means I ended up with bags full of all shapes and colors, and I really wanted to do something with them.
When I started filming my latest felting workshop, I decided it was time to reuse all this wool I had. And that’s what I’ve done. The items I’m teaching in my new workshop are all filled with these wool rests. And since I know you might have the same challenge, I thought it was about time I shared this with you too.
The workshop will be available soon. But in the meanwhile, I hope this can be something useful for you.
Talk to you soon!
P.S.: Do you have other ways to recycle felted wool? If so, do share them in the comments below.
