I can't imagine crafting without a steady supply of felt rope at my disposal. I use it in some of my brooch making... bracelets... necklaces... scarves...the possibilities are endless. Early on, I had started out trying to make felt rope from wool rovings. This was a very difficult task as well as time consuming. Trying to keep a uniform thickness going proved to be very challenging indeed... and my hands really took a beating. With this tutorial you will learn to make thin and thick felt rope from recycled 100% wool sweaters. This is an ECO-FRIENDLY technique for making felt strips that I think you will find to be incredibly satisfying. I only ask that you respect my discovering and owning this idea.
