What materials did you use? This was made with Rowan Colorscape (which is now discontinued).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Remember that the project will shrink both in height and circumference so plan for that. It will also make a "stiffer" fabric.

I like the idea of gradated colors - so pretty. Dye pots - here I come!!

I just finished the first project and thought it would look great felted, but I was worried that it would shrink too much since usually felted items are made bigger to allow for shinkage. I'm so happy to see that this works as a felted piece....into the washer it goes!

Please make sure the share the results. Remember felting is not necessarily consistent! But my guess is it will be fine

I made a wool one also, and found the fabric was too scratchy for my neck, so I was going to felt mine to. Just thought it would turn out more the size of a clutch/purse when I got done, we will see!

Just keep an eye on it during the felting process and you can "manage" the shrinkage.
