Fiber Friday

Three class participants with nearly-finished hats
Last week I got a good fiber fix, with this commission felting project completed and two hat felting classes!Despite one particular fleece giving us fits (it was slow to felt, and Kay, above, was ready to turn her hat into a place mat at one point!), everyone had great success with their hats, once again. Everyone stopped to see our newborn cria on their way out. Yes, another boy, but a lovely one at that.
I look forward to scheduling more classes in late summer, or if two or more people want to get together and request a class before then, I'm happy to do it! In the meantime, trail riding is beckoning and I'm having trouble finding more studio time. Here are a few nearly-finished projects that I made during classes....

Wow, beautiful hats! Do you felt with prime fleece or 2nds? I think the color of your new cria is lovely!

I use only prime fleece for felting, as I believe that for the time invested the outcome is soooo much nicer! (And, I think the prime felts better). I also love the color of the new cria, he's that really RICH red-brown. I've been admiring the alpaca reins on your website and am thinking of purchasing some for my husband- can you please email me more specific info on the ones you have? THANKS.
