I've been busy finishing up projects and getting ready for Best of the US Alpaca Show in Columbus, Ohio next weekend, March 12-14, where I will be setting up as a vendor.
This felting kit includes alpaca fiber in a variety of different colors for making beads, a felting needle, and detailed instructions. The process described involves both needle and wet felting.
There also is some suri fiber that works well for embellishing beads, be sure to pull apart and use very thin, wispy pieces.
I like to use a combination of both needle and wet felting. Needling your fiber into a smooth round ball actually makes the wet felting go very quickly and makes a nicer bead.
Here I made beads and then flattened them to make buttons for my felted mittens, coming soon!
