FURRY felted wool fingerless gloves tutorial. In this project you will wet felt reversible merino wool wristwarmers with fiber (silk, viscose or bamboo top used) lining and raw (unprocessed) wool locks. These fingerless mittens will give a slight stretch needed to slide your hand in and for comfort when wearing.
TUTORIAL is in .pdf format and provides 48 photos illustrating the process step by step with clear instruction. You will practice: 1. Seamless felting around resist. 2. Creating reversible item. 3. Felting a "fur" fringe. 4. Creating texture with raw wool locks. 5. Creating felt that has a slight stretch for comfortable wear.
It's preferable to have had some felting experience (please, check my flower/neck ruffle scarf ones) as prior understanding on how to pull a tuft of wool out is needed.
You will need: * About an ounce of merino wool top, a few grams of silk, viscose, or bamboo fiber (optional) and an ounce of wool locks. In this pair I used Wensleydale locks. Last photo of this listing shows wristwarmers made with non curly (crimped) raw wool. * 2 resists (sketch with explanation on how to make them provided) Mine are cut from 2mm floor underlay plastic. * A piece of bubble wrap that fits both resists laying next to each other and is a bit longer to allow for comfortable rolling. * A piece of tulle netting or synthetic net double the size of both resists laying next to each other. * Rolling pin or pool noodle. * Soap, warm water. * Plastic or vinyl gloves that slide on soapy wool without pulling any out (from hair dye kits, supermarket veggie section, etc.)
Very well written easy to follow. Thank you.
