Brilliant! I love your work!

Dubhlinn asked:
Beautiful work. I've got the roving and the needles and I'm going to give it a go.
tchrterri answered:
just a note... roving isn't the ideal wool for felting. A rough batting wool felts much quicker and easier! Many of the stores around here sell roving as felting wool. Some may work okay, but much of it is too silky. I am starting to stock my own wool that I buy wholesale.
Dubhlinn asked:
Hi, thanks for your note. I bought Filz-it felting wool. Is this ok or what do you suggest. Thanks for your advice.
tchrterri answered:
I don't know that type of wool. I'll see if anyone carries it in the US and see if I can find some.
