Thank you Laura - we hope you enjoy your felting!
Hello Michelle - no, the bars don't shed. When the felt is fulled around the soap the fibres are tightly meshed. As the soap is used the felt will shrink even more and when the soap is gone you'll end up with a neat little 'scrubby' pad. Always put the felted soap on a rack to dry between uses.

Hi Sylvia, thank you! I find that the yarns felt in very well, just make sure to use enough wool content and other things like silks and curls as they felt in well too. Be aware of not using Superwash fibres as this won't felt in very well. The best thing to do is to make a couple of samples to test it out. The effects can be wonderful. If the yarn doesn't felt in well for some reason you can always needle it a bit or use a few invisible hand stitches afterward. It usually felts in fine though as there is enough fluffy bits to be grabbed by the main felting fibres. Your comment was very timely as I've been meaning to get back to the spinning wheel for ages to make a new selection of bits to felt with, and you've given me a nudge to get it done! I can't believe the original post here was 2011! Time flies! As for the finishing process....well, I don't often do it all really, especially if the yarn is just for me and if it's just for feltmaking and doesn't need to be a good balanced spin for knitting or anything. On my list is to attempt some more technically good yarn and ply it etc but it's not necessary for artwork :) Have fun with your spinning and felting!

Ooh thanks Antje, it is a bit of colourful fun isn't it! :)
Hi Antje, our most recent visit was to the coast near Ravenscar. We did a little bit of walking and a bit of beachcombing. Didn't find anything but it was lovely! The time before I think we went to Wensleydale, near Aysgarth or Leyburn. The scenery is always beautiful, no matter the weather! :)

Thanks Ann, glad others see it too! I don't know exactly what to do with it yet, but it's a lovely piece of felt so will have a think :)

Thanks Antje. We mostly go to North Yorkshire - the moors & the dales. Anywhere that is a bit remote and good for walking, and a pint in a cosy country pub, when we're allowed of course :)

Thanks Karen. Yes it's great to get something better than you planned! Funny how the back of something is often as nice or even better than the front. I quite often find that when doing hand embroidery. Hope you have a lovely Christmas too :)

Thanks Antje, it has brought some seasonal cheer to my hallway. I really enjoy using and seeing star motifs :)

Thanks Marilyn, Merry Christmas to you too! I was really pleased when I realised what had happened. I bet if I had tried to do it it wouldn't have worked! :)

Thank you Elizabeth - it is cosy because felt is a great insulator against the cold.
