After our guest weaver left, we dug into our own wool roving
and felted some gorgeous Easter Eggs.
I found the tutorial here.
First we wrapped pieces of wool roving (which we ordered from Amazon) around styrofoam egg forms (found this time of year at local craft stores).
We carefully tied them snugly into pantyhose, making sure not to disturb the placement of the wool.
We then ran them under hot water and added a little dishsoap. Then we rub, rub, rubbed in order to mush the wool together into felt.
After we rinsed out the soap with cold water, we snipped off the pantyhose and admired our beautiful eggs.
We have enough wool roving to make at least a dozen more. I can’t wait to have a whole basket sitting on the sideboard at Easter time.
