|Laying out the layers. Base layer is striped blended Merino & Blue Faced Leicester roving. Second layer is a fine distribution of solidly died BFL wool roving laid perpendicularly to the first.|
|Third layer of green BFL roving matches direction of first layer.|
|Wet down with hot soapy water & close up any gaps with extra green wool.|
|Netting down and light felting using felting stone and soap. All the fibers will stick to one another, but still can easily be pulled apart like a cotton ball.|
|Tending the edges making sure all loose fibers get worked back towards the center.|
|Felting by friction. Rolled up in bubble wrap and then a towel, the lightly felted scarf under goes increasing amount of pressure in rolling. Takes about 20 minutes of solid effort. I like using my legs and feet- it saves my back!|
|The finish felted wool scarf. Notice, it has lost almost half it's length and nearly a third of it's width.|
