BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE. EACH FLOWER WILL TAKE APPROXIMATELY 1.5-2 HOURS TO MAKE.
This is a wet felting kit, which contains material and instructions to make 2 seamless 3D nuno felted flowers from merino wool and silk fibres.
The kit was tried and tested by my students at the Alexandra Palace Knitting and Stitching Show workshops with some beautiful pieces produced by complete beginners.
You will learn how to make 3D felt on a small scale and can build on this experience to move on to larger 3D projects, e.g. hats or bags. I have put a lot of thought and effort into creating this kit and I hope you will enjoy the experience and be inspired to design your own 3D pieces.
THE KIT CONTAINS: Detailed step by step instructions in English with colour photographs Bubble wrap Plastic template Merino wool in two colours (main colour for petals and another colour for stem/ stamen) Silk fibres (silk hankies or recycled sari silk) Brooch pin
YOU WILL ALSO NEED: Old towel Milk bottle (or similar) with holes in the lid filled up with warm water and few drops of washing up liquid Rolling pin or wooden dowel or pool noodle (optional) Scissors
You can mix and match the colours if you wish, please send me a message with your requirements.

Felt has self cleaning properties and does not require frequent washing.
However if required jackets and shawls can be hand washed in a mild detergent or hair shampoo and warm water. Rinse in warm water and remove excess water by gently squeezing in an old towel. Lay out flat on a dry towel and iron on reverse while still wet. Leave to dry.
Dirt can be brushed off hats and bags and then additionally wiped off with a damp cloth or sponge. Any pilling fibres can be carefully shaved off using a disposable razor (on the surface only, do not cut into the felt).
Felt will retain the shape it has dried in, so ensure you leave it to dry in the shape you require.
If you have any questions about caring for your felted item please do not hesitate to contact me.
