This month's featured product is Efco's Superfine Merino Wool Tops which are ideal for both wet felting and needle felting! They are gorgeously soft compared with normal wool tops and have long fibres enabling you to easily create some fabulous effects when felting.
There are 20 colours in the range, all of which are available in single colour 50g packs. Eighteen of them are also available in multicolour 50g packs: the basic assortment (containing natural (white), yellow, red, middle blue and green) and six other 3 colour packs - red, pink, blue, green, brown and monochrome mixes.
If you have never done wet felting before you may feel a little daunted so here are three small projects to get you started...
|F/0012M - Felted Soap|
|TF/0002M - Felted Beads|
|F/0011M - Felt Flowers|
All these projects are easy to do even if you have never felted before - so why not have a go! The felted soaps are so easy to do and they make excellent gifts as the felt acts as a loofah! Once you've got the hang of making felt flowers you'll find it's an easy step up to making a felt scarf. Check out the Product of the Month page for more info.
I will be demonstrating wet felting alongside Efco's new coloured wires at Stitches, the trade craft show at the NEC. So if you own a craft shop do pop by the Efco stand (G25) to see how easy wet felting is! I look forward to seeing you there.
