Pattern Description:

How to make 100's and 100's of 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" felt beads at a time from recycled wool sweaters. not a wisp of roving in sight!!
This is an ECO-Friendly technique for making felt beads that I think you will find to be incredibly satisfying.
I discovered quite by accident that I could make felt beads from my thrifted wool sweaters. I take every opportunity I have to experiment with felting techniques that pertain to wool sweaters.... The possibilities are endless.
Many, many, many sweaters later I finally believe I have come up with the perfect technique for making hundreds if not thousands of wool beads all at once ... Your hands won't touch a drop of water.
The reason I went through so many sweaters was because I had to be sure about what kinds of wool sweaters produced consistent results.
I feel truly blessed that I chanced upon this idea, I worked very diligently in developing this exciting technique.
I only ask that you respect my discovering and owning this idea.
Make a million beads if you like, use them in your jewelry designs and crafting projects.
