Knit then Felt with Marr Haven worsted

It is always true that a picture is worth a thousand words. Leslee Perez of Texas shared this photo of the box she knit then felted with our yarn. The photo arrived at a perfect time as a customer was asking about using our yarn for a knit the felt purse. I always explain it takes our yarn much longer to felt in the washing machine because of the fine grade of wool; but Leslee's picture said it much better.

I have the banner done for the Oct 3rd Felt United event. I can't show it until after 10- 3 but I can describe it. It is my hand dyed shades of orange with interlocking circles and ovals just beneath the surface of the felt. It depicts the united groups of feltmakers all over the world creating the total fabric of felt.
