Product Details

Design and create a one-of-a-kind felted purse! In this class we will using the wet felting method which is achieved using warm soapy water and natural fiber. You will be making a template, layering alpaca wool roving or batts around the template, adding warm, soapy water, and then doing lots of rubbing, patting, and rolling. The warm water opens the scales on the fiber, and the friction applied causes the fiber to felt, creating a lovely and durable fabric. No felting needles and no knitting is involved in this type of felting, and no experience is required to have a great time creating a unique felted purse.
